Grilled romaine (serves 2)
1 head of romaine
1 tbsp coconut oil (or avocado oil)

cut romain in half, brush well with oil. Place on a medium high grill and grill until wilted and charred.
Sprinkle lots of salt and pepper and enjoy! I love it with a little balsamic vinaigrette or a homemade caesar dressing!
