Ingredients

  • 2 bunches thin to medium asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 bunch broccolini, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium flame (or about 400). Toss the asparagus and broccolini in a bowl with the oil, plus ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper.
  2. When the grill is ready, arrange the vegetables on one side of the grill, crosswise over the grates, piling them slightly. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, until lightly charred underneath. Carefully turn the vegetables with a spatula, flipping them over, away from you; cover and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Serve the asparagus and broccolini hot, at room temperature or chilled.
