BBQ'D BROC AND PEPPERS: A Holistic Nutritionist's Recipe

Updated: Nov 27, 2023

Who doesn't love a simple veg mix done on the BBQ? I know this holistic nutrition coach does!!

Looking for an easy combo to put on the BBQ this week? Broccoli is a great source of iron, potassium, calcium, selenium and magnesium as well as the vitamins A, C, E, K and a good array of B vitamins including folic acid. Red peppers are high in vitamin A, which support healthy eyesight, especially night vision. They have 300 percent of your daily vitamin C intake and a great source of vitamin B6 and magnesium. Onions are an excellent source of vitamin C, sulphuric compounds, flavonoids and phytochemicals. All this in one easy side dish!

Grab a couple nice sized crowns of broccoli, or a bag already cut up.  Wash and trim each floret to the size you want. Toss in a bowl with a sliced red pepper, onion and a clove or 2 of minced garlic. If you really want to add some fresh mushroom, go for it!  Drizzle 2 TBSP of olive oil, a bit of seasoning of your choice and a bit of salt and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and shake it all up. This is my "easy distribution method" instead of stirring. 

Using a flat bottomed grill basket, pour everything in and cook over medium-high heat until you reach your desired level of tenderness in the veg. Thinking of cooking this tonight! Post a Pic and TAG ME on social media so I can take a peak!! Follow me here: @succeedwithshirley Happy BBQing!
