Grilled Romaine

Today’s recipe is inspired from a FODMAPer, Chris…who happens to be a chef as well.  I had never thought about grilling romaine lettuce before!  Have you ever grilled lettuce? Well, check it out!Grilled Lemon and garlic romaine

This recipe is so simple and yet….might become my new favorite!

All you need to have on hand:  1 head of romaine, a fresh lemon, garlic infused oil, shredded parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.  Recipe below!

What a gorgeous weekend here in New England!  Saturday, I enjoyed a trip to Maine with Russ, and Russ’ folks, Tony and Mickie! It was a bit breezy, but a nice visit!  Yesterday, Russ and I headed to Rhode Island to bike the East Bay Bike Path.  This bike trail is by far one of the prettiest I have seen!  Russ gave me the most fun beach bike for my birthday last month and I was excited to enjoy my maiden voyage on my new toy!

bikingI hope you enjoyed a wonderful weekend and are ready to take on the week ahead.  If you fire up your grill this week…seriously try this grilled romaine salad.  It’s so tasty!!

Grilled Romaine

Ingredients

  • 1 head romaine lettuce, rinsed, dried and cut in half

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

  1. Brush the cut sides of the romaine lettuce evenly with 1/2 tablespoon of oil. (Don't overdo the oil as you don't want to spark a fire on the grill)

  3. Drizzle grilled lettuce with lemon juice, garlic infused oil, salt and pepper.
