Here’s how to make grilled broccoli: it comes out charred, delightfully sweet and crisp tender. The best side dish for a grilled dinner!


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh broccoli, stem on (about 3 large heads)*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 lemon
  • Optional: 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, for serving


  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees).
  2. Wash the broccoli and pat it dry with a towel. Chop it into large florets with long stems so they are easy to turn on the grill (see the photo for approximate size). In a bowl, mix the broccoli with the olive oil, kosher salt, garlic powder, and plenty of fresh ground black pepper.
  3. Place the broccoli directly on the grill grates and grill for about 6 to 8 minutes until charred and tender, turning once.
  4. Remove from the grill and spritz with lemon juice from wedges from 1/2 of the lemon. Taste and add a few more pinches of kosher salt, if needed. If desired, top with Parmesan cheese and serve.
