Grilled Romain Lettuce

Steps to follow:-
To make a Grilled Romain Lettuce:
  1. Pull off any old leaves. Chop off the top 1 or 2 inches of the lettuce head, and shave off the browned part of the root end, leaving the root end intact so that the lettuce head stays together.
  2. Turn your gas grill to high or get your charcoal coal grill very hot.
  3. Put the oil, vinegar, herbs, salt and pepper in a small bowl and whisk with a fork to combine. Paint the lettuce hearts all over with the vinaigrette.
  4. Grill the romaine hearts until lightly browned on all sides, turning every minute or two until done.
  5. Serve immediately. You can either serve the hearts whole, or chop them and toss them for a salad.

How to consume:

  • As with all produce, fresh is best. Try to eat romaine within a few days of purchase.
  • You can buy hearts of romaine lettuce instead of the entire head. However, the outermost leaves are highest in nutrient density. No matter which typeyou buy, make sure to wash thoroughly to remove dirt and debris.
  • Romaine lettuce is probably best known for its use in Caesar salad, but is also delicious halved, brushed with olive oil, and grilled.
  • If you’re trying to sneak added nutrients onto your family’s plates, romaine can make a great cushion for any type of crunchy food.
