Cooking for 6 people


  • 2 tbsp. torn fresh herbs (basil, dill, parsley)
  • 2 lb. broccoli (1 large head)
  • 3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • kosher salt and ground black pepper, to taste

Ranch Dip

  • 0.5 cup sour cream
  • 0.5 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing, Seasoning & Recipe Mix Shaker
  • lemon juice, to taste

1 Food Prep

Trim off the woody bottom half of your broccoli stems. Then, cut the head of your broccoli in half and cut each half into 1” wedges or “trees”.

Lay your broccoli pieces out on a sheet tray or in a large bowl.  Drizzle your olive oil over the broccoli and season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to gently toss, making sure to coat each piece of broccoli with oil and seasoning.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Direct-Heat Grilling

Temp: 400°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place your broccoli directly onto the grate and cook for about 10–12 minutes, flipping every few minutes, until knife-tender and slightly charred.

  • While your broccoli cooks, mix together your ranch dip ingredients. Once you remove your broccoli from the grill, drizzle your ranch dip over the warm broccoli and top with fresh torn herbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Grilled Broccoli I really don't care for Broccoli, so I decided to try this recipe! It was actually pretty good and my family loves it! I love to grill lemon on the side to squeeze over the top of broccoli when it’s done cooking. I also top it with some shaved Parmesan cheese for more flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A grilled side You can prepare this while grilling your main meal also. Great idea to oil grill so food doesn't stick.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I’m Not Sure About This I followed the directions exactly. I left them on for the min time, but a lot of them charred. The parts that charred didn’t taste good at all & basically disintegrated into ashes as soon as I put them in my mouth. I wasn’t a fan of these. I really liked the ranch sauce. I also put it on my salmon…yumm. I’ll try again and keep a better eye on them. My grill may cook them faster than the directions state.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Unimpressed I wish I could say otherwise, but we weren’t a fan of the grilled broccoli. The ranch dip was really good, but the broccoli, not so much. I cooked it for the minimum time, flipping it very 3 min. They were too charred. Maybe cooked too long? I hate to say, I won’t be trying this again.
