Grilled Broccoli with Chipotle-Lime Butter

I love grilling season. During the summer, my vegetable of choice is grilled corn. My grilled corn usually comes slathered with butter and an ungodly amount of Tabasco. So, when I saw this recipe for grilled broccoli with chipotle-lime butter, I was completely smitten. You'll be amazed how the broccoli gets lightly charred and smokey. And the chipotle-lime butter adds volumes of flavor and just a little heat.

Grilled Broccoli with Chipotle-Lime Butter

6 T. butter, softened
1 lime, zested and juiced plus additional wedges for serving
1 canned chipotle, minced plus small spoonfuls of adobo sauce
1 tsp. honey
1 garlic clove, minced
3 heads of broccoli, cut into florets
Olive oil, for spraying or drizzling
1 cup queso fresco, crumbled

Heat grill to medium-high.

Stir together all ingredients for the chipotle-lime butter and add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Spread broccoli on a large baking pan and drizzle/spray with olive oil.

Season with salt and pepper and then transer to the heated grill.

Grill for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through (the pieces should have nice3 grill marks but not be too charred).

Transfer to a serving bowl and top with spoonfuls of chipotle-lime butter.

Serve warm, topped with crumble cheese.
