Grilled romaine lettuce

A substitute for grilled burgers. Not quite the real deal but still just as juicy and fresh. Enjoy as a side dish at barbeques and gatherings.

Ingredients:

  • 3-4 romaine lettuce hearts

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • 2 teaspoon chopped fresh herbs eg. thyme, rosemary

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • Freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:

  1. Pull old leaves off the romaine hearts. Cut the brown root parts so the root is left intact.

  2. Prepare the grill for high heat.

  3. Add oil, vinegar, herbs, salt and pepper into a bowl. Stir to combine and paint over lettuce heads.

  4. Grill hearts for 1-2 minutes on each side until done.

  5. Serve immediately.
