Chargrilled Asparagus and Broccoli with Chili and Garlic

by Ooooby Crew


1 head broccoli
1 small bunch asparagus
100ml olive oil
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
2 mild red chillies, thinly sliced
coarse sea salt or maldon salt
black pepper


Separate the broccoli into florets and blanch for 2 minutes in boiling water. Plunge into cold water to stop cooking and drain. Repeat same process with the asparagus. Toss both with 1/2 the olive oil and salt and pepper. Heat your grill plate on BBQ or large frying pan until smoking hot. Grill the broccoli and asparagus in batches, turn to get nice char marks. Heat the remaining oil with the chili and garlic until garlic is golden. Pour the chilli garlic oil over the broccoli and asparagus on a serving platter and top with shaved parmesan.

The service provided is second to none and the best thing is that I have discovered how to cook delicious, sustainable vegetables I have never eaten before. I absolutely love the surprise each week when I discover what is in the box.
