2In a double-boiler or microwave, lightly steam the broccolini for 1–1 ½ minutes, or until bright green and just tender. Immediately blanch in iced water to stop the cooking process, then drain well and place in a large bowl.
3Zucchini doesn't need precooking, so just add it straight to the bowl. Drizzle with the olive oil, add the garlic and season with salt and pepper to taste. Toss gently.
4When you're ready to cook, remove the broccolini and zucchini using tongs, letting the excess oil drip back into the bowl, and place on the grill plate of your barbecue. Quickly toss the olives and almonds in the leftover garlic oil mixture, then place on the flat plate of your barbecue.
5Grill the broccolini and zucchini for a few minutes on each side, until lightly charred, and cook the olives and almonds for a few minutes, until warmed through.
6Transfer the grilled greens to a warmed serving plate. Scatter the warm olives and almonds over the veggies and serve with lemon wedges.
Use whatever veggies are in season: cauliflower cut into florets, pumpkin cut into 1 cm slices, and halved Brussels sprouts are great. Steam for 2 minutes then toss in the garlicky olive oil and grill on the barbie.
