Seriously, I can't remember why I was such a bratty, awful kid and who didn't like veggies. It is a little embarrassing and kinda sad that I missed out of stuff like this. I totally think I am making up for lost time in my adult years though, so I'm OK with that.
And lately, I'm grilled obsessed. Maybe its the hot afternoons, the long sunny summer evenings, the fact that if I touch my stove my house heats up 15 degrees. Yeah, probably all of those things.
Either way, I think I am getting pretty good at this grill stuff. Over the past month, I've been wanting to share these grilled green beans, but I eat them all too quickly to snap a photo and post it. Whoops. But I found some self control and finally got some.
These are probably one of the easiest side veggies I've ever made. All you have to do it trim em, toss up in some oil, sprinkle with some salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes and grill.
I preheat my grill to medium high and make a little tin foil tray. If you have a grill basket that would work too.
Add your beans and close the grill for 7-10 minutes. Toss them a bit to help evenly cook them. They should start to get charred. Cook for another 5-7 minutes and your done.
These have become husband approved too! Always a bonus. We had these last night next to some pan seared salmon, grilled corn and farro. A perfect summer dinner.
What are some of your favorite veggies to grill?
