Grilled Broccoli with GarlicIf you have never grilled broccoli I highly recommend it.  Grilling makes the broccoli tender and sweet with a little bit of crispiness. This dish is great by itself or combined with other grilled vegetables.

The success of this dish is not letting the broccoli get dried out.  Keep the flame medium, but if they begin to brown before they are tender, turn it down.
