Broccoli is a classic vegetable that can be enjoyed year-round in most areas. It's full of fiber and vitamins, low in calories and fat-free. Best of all, grilling helps to preserve the nutrients in broccoli, which are often lost during the boiling process. It can also help to add a rich, smoky flavor while keeping broccoli firm and crisp.
You can grill broccoli indoors or out. When cooking indoors, try tossing the broccoli in olive oil and grilling for 10 minutes per side. Outdoors, you can place a full broccoli crown face down on the grill, or cook broccoli spears or florets in a grill basket. Brush the head of the broccoli with olive oil or butter, and flavor with salt and pepper. Serve with melted cheddar for a richer taste, or sprinkle with parmesan cheese. For those on a low-sodium diet, try using lemon to flavor grilled broccoli [source: EatingWell].
