“Grilled Lemon Infused Potatoes with Broccoli”

I find myself using the grill to cook everything. Potatoes are great on the grill and because potatoes are so versatile mixing other veggies and seasonings is easy. Take my Grilled Lemon Infused Potatoes with Broccoli for instance. Delicious lemony goodness served with your favorite grilled meat or fish. Mix all ingredients together except broccoli which is added last to a grill safe pan. I used a foil pan for easy clean up.

When mixing bright green vegetables such as broccoli or asparagus in dishes, blanch and shock vegetables first. Cook your vegetables for two minutes in salted boiling water. Remove vegetables immediately and plunge into ice water. The ice bath will halt the cooking process and helps to set color. The chilled vegetables can be added to or reheated by sautéing or even grilled without losing their bright green color. If you will be eating your veggies right away you will have no problem keeping the green color. Grilled Lemon Infused Potatoes with Broccoli is quick, easy and delicious. Try using red or orange bell pepper in this veggie mix for a flavor variation. This recipe can also be done in your oven if you wish.
