Grilled Teriyaki Broccoli

(Vegetarian, GF)

This recipe gives you everything you could possibly want to make a vegetable “side” the most popular dish on the table. It’s got charred broccoli on top of sweet teriyaki sauce covered in crispy garlic, crunchy salty peanuts, and some added heat from the fresno chilis — pretty perfect. Make sure to save the leftover sauce to put in a bowl on the side, because you are going to want to dunk every piece of broccoli in it.
