  • 16 oz broccolini
  • Avocado oil, or other neutral, high smoke point oil of choice
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper, to season


  1. Preheat the grill: Prep your grill for medium-high direct heat grilling. My ideal grill temperature for broccolini is about 450-500 degrees F.Weber Genesis II Propane Grill on a deck.
  2. Prep the broccolini: Trim the broccolini of any tough ends. Drizzle with just enough avocado oil to coat the broccolini, then season generously with kosher salt and ground black pepper. Multiple pieces of fresh & uncooked broccolini stalks seasoned with oil, kosher salt, & ground black pepper lie on an aluminum baking sheet. The baking sheet sits on top of a white & gray marble surface.
  3. Grill the broccolini: Place the seasoned broccolini on the grill such that the stalks are positioned perpendicularly to the grill grates (which helps prevent from slipping between the grates as it cooks). Grill 2-3 minutes per side until tender and charred as desired. These go quick, so be sure to keep an eye on ’em!
  4. Serve! Enjoy your grilled broccolini immediately, served on their own or alongside your favorite grilled meals. Refer to the blog post, above, for more serving suggestions.


  • Grilled broccolini practically begs for little spritz of freshly squeezed lemon juice! Take it to the next level by grilling some lemon wedges alongside your asparagus for extra smoky flavor.
