Bright, fresh lemon contrasts with spicy red chili flakes in this easy yet impressive dish. The recipe also works well with regular broccoli or asparagus.
2 pounds or bunches broccolini
Zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Clean and oil grates. Clean and trim woody ends, if any, on broccolini. Place in a bowl and toss with 1 drizzle vegetable oil and a sprinkle of pepper. Grill 5 to 7 minutes until charred and cooked but not soggy or overly wilted.
2. While broccolini is grilling, whisk together lemon zest and juice, chili flakes, and olive oil in a large bowl. Remove grilled broccolini and place in lemon and olive oil bowl. Toss to combine and serve immediately.
