I've made this several times now and it never gets old! I also discovered while sneaking bites that the marinade is just as good if you leave the broccoli raw. I gave an aunt the recipe because she loved it so much and since it was raining and they sauteed it and said it was still delicious. FIVE STARS!!!! EDIT: also great sauteed...

Loved this recipe. I found the directions weren't too clear about how to bbq the broccoli, and the DH and I thought it would really make a mess to put it straight onto the grill, so I wrapped the broccoli in tin foil and cooked it that way. I was in a rush and did not have time to marinate, but that did not detact from the wonderful flavor. Next time, I will marinate the broccoli with garlic...drain it... put it on the bbq in a wok with holes in it...cook the broccoli the add the parmesan cheese at the end and let it melt onto the broccoli. However method you choose to cook this veggie, you will be bowled over how good it taste. Good find, Messy

Delicious!! Perfect side dish for BBQ chicken and rice with black beans. Instead of salt, I added about a tablespoon of teriyaki sauce. It was perfect! We have one of those gas grills with a grate on it which is perfect for plunking down veggies directly on the grill. If you have a traditional grill with the wide slots, they make wire baskets specifically for grilling. I have one and it allows you to shake/stir your veggies so they get an even char. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

Who would have guessed that grilled broccoli would have been so delicious?! The parmesan got a bit crispy on the grill, but that tasted fantastic. I didn't drain off the marinade but put the parmesan in at the beginning with the other ingredients. We cooked it in a grill pan it was great. Thanks for posting!

Lovely recipe. Fresh & tasty, not to mention easy to make. I used 2 foil pie plates (clipped together with foldback clips) to cook the broccoli. It works good to flip for cooking & easier to check doneness at the end. Thanks for sharing.

I made this exactly as directed (except maybe marinated longer than directed but don't think that matters) and it was wonderful. I'll be doing this often. So easy and the grill gave it such a wonderful smokey flavor.

Really wanted to like this, but no joy. I've had delicious grilled broccoli at a seafood restaurant and thought I'd give it a try myself. I used a mix of broccoli and cauliflower and cooked it on the upper rack of my grill in a little aluminum foil bowl. Other than adding the cauliflower, I followed the recipe exactly. The broccoli and Parmesan flavors just didn't mesh well to our taste buds. We actually preferred the flavor of the cauliflower made this way, but not enough to make it again. I use a very similar recipe to cook squash and zucchini, and it's always great.

Super recipe! I used about 5 small "heads" of early broccoli and quartered them--ending up with about 6 cups--and then used the two bags like Jude. No mess, practically no work, totally delicious, and no leftovers (with only three people)! I will definitely make this again!

I've never grilled broccoli before, but this is delicious. I used a bit less parmesan and added some asiago and garlic. I used flowerettes and a grill pan with the holes in it. It was more like an appetizer/finger food than a side dish. I'll definitely be making this again.
