Grilled Broccoli and Cauliflower

Grilled Broccoli and Cauliflower

Broccoli and cauliflower florets tossed with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper and grilled


4-6 servings


2 medium-large red onions, cut into halves and thickly sliced
4 cups broccoli florets (bite-size)
1 medium head cauliflower, washed, trimmed and cut into florets (bite-size)
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1-2 tablespoons minced garlic (I like a lot!)
1/3 cup oil


1. Pre-heat grill, along with a grill grid/pan* on HIGH for 10 minutes. Toss all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. (When adding the salt, sprinkle it rather than dumping it all in one spot.)

2. Pour vegetables onto pre-heated grill pan and spread out evenly. Turn heat to LOW and grill with lid closed for 20-30 minutes. (Smaller florets will cook more quickly.)

Stir and check for doneness every 10 minutes; vegetables are done when crisp-tender and browned on some sides. Serve hot and enjoy! :)

I like to serve these grilled veggies with grilled fish, beef, or chicken.

Additional Notes: 

*We have a grill pan like this one; this grill grid is the highest rated on Amazon.

You can use less oil if you like, although I think it tastes best if it's a little oily so it gets a nice crisp grilled flavor. :)

I've also made this with only broccoli (8-10 cups of broccoli, and no cauliflower) and onions and it's good that way too! :)

Tammy's Review: 

These grilled veggies are easy and yummy! I've made this recipe handfuls of times now, and we all love it! At first my boys didn't want to eat the onions, but when they tasted the onion with the broccoli, they decided it was good after all. :)

I like this much better than the steamed broccoli I had been making, and it keeps the heat out of the kitchen in the summer, too! :)


I love this easy way to serve broccoli and cauliflower! I like to grill this myself and while Joshua seasons some meat and then he grills the meat while I set the table. With some fresh fruit on the side, we've got an easy, healthy, low-carb dinner!
