  1. Keep your broccoli in large pieces so that it is easy to turn the pieces on the grill.
  2. Place the broccoli in a bowl and sprinkle with olive oil and seasoning.  Mix the broccoli until fully covered.
  3. Place the broccoli in a grill basket and grill, tossing frequently. Remove the florets when they are crisp at the edges and tender within which will be approximately 10 to 12 minutes after you place them on the grill.  If you don’t have a grill basket, you can place the florets out on the grill in a single level and use tongs to turn them. This alternative is more work but your broccoli will taste great.

NOTE: For the spinach, you don’t have to use foil for cooking on the grill. You can use grill dishes that are available on the market and reusable (eco-friendly.) The grill dish is different than the grill basket. For the spinach, you do not want to have holes in the dish.
