Fresh broccolette (a cross of Chinese kale and broccoli), like so many other vegetables, is just delicious when grilled, and it's so very easy to do as seen in this recipe courtesy of the country's largest supplier of organic produce, Earthbound Farms!
For a flavor boost, they've marinated the broccolette, but if you're in a hurry, skip this step and just brush the spears with olive oil prior to grilling. To facilitate hassle-free cooking, try to select spears that are all about the same thickness.
1 pound fresh Earthbound Farm Organic Broccolette (wash and dried)
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic (peeled and flattened roughly)
1 teaspoon Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
Place the broccolette in a gallon-size ziplock bag or in a pan just large enough to accommodate the bunch.
Place the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid, and shake vigorously to combine. Pour the marinade over the broccolette, coating all surfaces. Marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes, preferably 1 hour. If marinating longer (up to 3 hours), place the broccolette in the refrigerator.
To cook, grill the broccolette directly over medium heat, turning once or twice with tongs, until they're crisp-tender, 4 to 8 minutes depending on the thickness of your spears. Serve hot, cold, or at room temperature.
