It is easier than it sounds. Chop your broccoli into small, bite-sized pieces. Subsequently, wash your broccoli, toss it with some olive oil and any spice combination you like and you are ready to go. Place a large piece of foil on the grill, fire up your grill to medium heat, toss the prepared broccoli on the heat, and eight minutes later and you have one killer side dish.
