Grilled Broccoli with Chipotle-Lime ButterYields: 6 servings.

Estimated time: 30 minutes.


  • 6 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced + additional wedges for serving (optional)
  • 1 canned chipotle, minced, + small spoonful of adobo sauce
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 3 heads of broccoli, cut into florets
  • Olive oil, for spraying or drizzling
  • 1 cup queso fresco, crumbled


  1. Heat grill to medium-high.
  2. Stir together all ingredients for the chipotle-lime butter and add a pinch of salt and pepper. (Or give it a whirl for ~10 seconds in your small chopper/food processor).
  3. Spread broccoli on a large baking pan and drizzle/spray with olive oil.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and then transfer to the heated grill.
  5. Grill ~10 minutes, flipping or stirring halfway through – the pieces should have nice grill marks but not be too charred.
  6. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with spoonfuls of chipotle-lime butter (I only used half the butter and refrigerated the rest).
  7. Serve warm, topped with crumbled cheese.
