1 head of broccoli chopped

olive oil for cooking

garlic or hot peppers

optional: Your favourite hot sauce


Put a cast iron pan on a grill over a hot fire. Let it heat up for 5 minutes. Add in oil. When it sizzles add in the broccoli, garlic or peppers and hot sauce if you are using. Stir often. Broccoli will crisp up. If it is getting crunchy but is not done in the center add some water. When the broccoli is soft on the inside take off the fire and consume. Yum!


You can easily sub any veggie you have on hand. Great choices are cauliflower, kale, onions, cabbage, or eggplant. Be careful when cooking over the fire that you don’t burn yourself. Never use river stones around your fire as the water in them can cause explosions.
