This recipe is easy and versatile: You can bump up the flavor of the veggies by adding fresh lemon peel, garlic or ginger, red pepper flakes or ground cayenne.

Easy Grilled Asparagus and Broccolini




00 min


00 min


2 bunches thin to medium asparagus, trimmed

1 bunch broccolini, trimmed

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Sea salt and freshly ground pepper


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.

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.

Serve the asparagus and broccolini hot, at room temperature or chilled.
