A lot of kids don't like broccoli. But then again, a lot of kids believe that a fat bearded man crawls down billions of chimneys in a single night to deliver My Little Ponys and Legos, or that a giant, anthropomorphized bunny breaks into their yards every year and hides plastic eggs full of jelly beans and miniature Tootsie Rolls.

You, on the other hand: sharp. Broccoli is great; you've just got to know what you're working with and do it right.

This recipe from Andrea Reusing dresses up this lovely brassica with a hit on the grill, buttery mustard breadcrumbs, garlic, anchovies, lemon zest, and chile flakes. It's ready in a jiffy and is the perfect antidote to the all-Taco Bell diet that you've been chowing down on this week.
