The best part of this broccoli is the char is receives from the grill- the dark brown crispy edges of grilled broccoli will make you re-think the vegetable all together. The preparation and seasonings are simple so you don't miss out on the true broccoli flavor.
Be patient here, they need to spend 8-10 minutes of the gril to become tender; don't be afraid of charred marks as they are full of flavor. Dark brown is not burnt.
