Spicy Green Tea Grilled Broccoli

From Carol C.

  • 1 lb. broccoli
  • 2 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1 Tbsp loose green tea
  • 1 fresh red chile pepper, cut into strips
  • 1 Tbsp rice wine, dry sherry or Mirin
  • salt/pepper

Wash and cut up broccoli. Heat oil in non-stick stovetop grill; add green tea and grill until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the chile and broccoli and grill until broccoli browns, about 5 minutes. Turn occasionally with spatula to grill all sides of the broccoli. Add the wine and season with salt and pepper; grill couple more minutes (I would think you could also stir-fry this).
