Spicy Grilled Broccoli - Sweetgreen Copycat Recipe

July 6, 2020

Spicy Broccoli is one of my favorites! I used to work right next to a Sweetgreen and quickly became so addicted to their salads! For those who are not familiar with Sweetgreen, they are a casual restaurant chain known for their amazing fresh and healthy salads. With delicious and unique combinations of fresh flavors.

Since I am no longer working there anymore, I decided to try and recreate their Spicy Broccoli on the grill. It is something that I really miss and crave! I am happy to say that it turned out amazing and tasted just like Sweetgreen's! I love to be able to come up with a vegetable recipe that I can grill right next to my meat entree. It makes cleanup a breeze with less pots and pans! And who doesn't love that?

Spicy Grilled Broccoli


1 large head of broccoli

1 1/2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 to 1 tsp Sriracha, depending on how spicy you want it

1/4 tsp kosher salt

1/8 tsp pepper

1/8 to 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes, depending on how spicy you want it

  1. Chop off the broccoli florets into small pieces.

  2. Place the broccoli in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients.

  3. Give a good toss to make sure that all of the broccoli is covered well.

  4. Fire up the grill and grill on a grill pan or a piece of foil.

  5. Make sure that you keep an eye on the broccoli and turn it frequently.

  6. You can tell that the Spicy Broccoli will be done when it gets a good crispy char on it.

So delicious! I highly recommend trying broccoli cooked like this! It really brings out such a great unique flavor!

And if you have any leftovers, here is my very favorite Sweetgreen Copycat Chicken Pesto Parm Salad Bowl...

This salad is delicious served cold...

Or my favorite way to eat it is by microwaving it for two minutes. I know it sounds weird but it is amazing! The spinach and tomatoes cook and melt together with the Parmesan cheese. It is incredible this way!!

Now I am really craving my favorite Sweetgreen salad!! I hope that you enjoy these recipes as much as I do!
