  • 1 pound broccolini about 2 small bunches
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon halved crosswise
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese more to taste


  • Preheat the grill to medium high. Wash and trim the broccolini then prepare it for grilling by tossing in olive oil. Season generously with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Place the broccolini directly on the grill or on mesh grill mats, followed by the lemon halves cut side down. Cook the broccolini for 6 to 9 minutes, rotating often to promote even caramelization, until it is charred and tender to your liking.
  • Remove the broccolini and lemons from the grill and transfer to serving plates. Drizzle with juice from the lemons and sprinkle with parmesan cheese to taste. Enjoy!


  • Other seasoning ideas: flaky sea salt, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple days. Reheat on high in the microwave for 1 to 2 minutes, or enjoy them cold.
  • To make vegan, omit the parmesan cheese.
