This healthy and simple Grilled Broccoli recipe was inspired by a comment Kristi left on my Grilled Chipotle Orange Chicken post way back when:

Elana, you mentioned you like to serve this yummy chicken with grilled broccoli. I’ve grilled other veggies but not this. How do you go about grilling broccoli? Thanks! Kristi

Thank you, Kristi! I hope you enjoy this grilled broccoli with my Grilled Chipotle Orange Chicken or another gluten free chicken recipe.

Grilled Broccoli

  1. Wash and cut broccoli into smallish pieces with long stems
  2. Toss broccoli in a large bowl with olive oil and salt
  3. Place on grill over medium heat
  4. Cook for 3-5 on each side until tender
  5. Serve

When I made this broccoli a couple of afternoons ago in order to get a picture of it for y’all, I had to hide it from my boys.  They wanted to eat it all –they like this dish that much!  The grilled broccoli also goes really well with a little homemade garlic oil poured over it.  That’s one of our favorite wintery dinner side dishes.
