Reviews for Grilled Broccoli
"Very nice flavor. I steamed my broccoli instead of grilling it and then added the lemon juice and oil to it. Turned out very tasty."
"Pretty tasty! Would probably grill a little longer next time."
"Definitely a different take on broccoli. No marinade left over for me either. This was a nice change for a side dish."
"I agree with DebbiR, I didn't have any marinade to empty. It did come out OK, though it was sticking on my grilling pan (I used an old baking tray). I would make it again, but I would use more oil and a little more lemon juice."
"I followed the recipe, but I added about a 1/4 to a 1/2 teaspoon of garlic power"
"i am just making this but don't understand how i could have enough marinade even to "drain". i had to double it just to coat the 2 cups of broccoli!"
"I bought a teflon pan with small holes in it for my grill, this works well with this broccoli dish/great for fish/shrimp/stir fry on the grill."
