Soy Marinated Grilled Broccoli with Browned Peanuts


  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into florets (2 greens when cooked)
  • 1/2 cup peanuts (if you want to be 21 Day Fix exact, you would use 28 peanuts)
  • For the marinade:
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce – use Tamari if gluten free!
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 inch knob of fresh ginger, sliced (no need to peel)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes


  1. Stir all marinade ingredients together in a medium-large bowl
  2. Add your broccoli, toss to combine
  3. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, tossing every once in a while
  4. Heat a grill pan over medium high heat – add your broccoli
  5. Move the broccoli around often, flipping it and shifting it so it doesn’t burn
  6. When the broccoli is almost done cooking and has gotten some nice brown color, remove the garlic and ginger pieces from the marinade, and pour the marinade over the broccoli in your grill pan
  7. Toss to combine and cook until the broccoli is done to your liking (I like mine to still have a bite to it – not too soft)
  8. While the broccoli is cooking, brown your peanuts
  9. Place a small-medium skillet over medium heat
  10. Add your peanuts and cook, tossing often, until a deep brown color has developed on the peanuts. Make sure not to burn them! You want brown, not black :).
  11. Toss the peanuts and broccoli together and serve!
