Cooking time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Lightly brush the spring onions with oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 2

    Throw them straight onto the bars of your preheat BBQ; they’ll take anywhere between 5-8 mins to cook, depending on their size.
  • Step 3

    Turn them often and don’t worry if they look too burnt on the outside; you can always discard the outer layer before serving. You know they are ready when they feel noticeably softer.
