Sesame-Ginger Broccoli and Bell Pepper

Whip up this side dish in 10 minutes the next time you barbecue


  • 1 (12-oz) bag fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 Tbsp ponzu or soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp dark sesame oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seeds

Serves 4

In a large bowl, whisk minced ginger, hoisin sauce, ponzu or soy sauce, sesame oil, salt and black pepper; toss with broccoli florets and sliced red bell pepper. Spoon vegetable mixture onto the center of an 18 by 26-inch sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil coated with nonstick spray. Bring up the sides of the foil and triple-fold to close up the top; crimp edges to seal the sides.Grill over medium heat (350°F) for 8 minutes. Carefully open one end of packet using tongs to allow steam to escape, and pour contents into a serving bowl. Remove from grill and let stand 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving.

PACKET PERFECTION Tuck the ingredients inside foil, toss the packets on the grill, and walk away. The food cooks via steam heat, so once the packets are puffed up, you’re done!
