Grilled Green Beans with Garlic and Lemon

Posted on

I really love grilling in the summer – it’s so nice to not have to turn on the stove to make dinner in the heat. I’ve bookmarked tons of main-dish recipes but grilled side dishes are a little harder to come by. I’ve got green beans growing in the garden, so I knew this would be a great dish for us.

These are super easy and have such nice, fresh flavors. The perfect option for a grilled side!

Grilled Green Beans with Garlic and Lemon
(from Michael Ruhlman)
Serves 4-6 as a side

1/4 c. olive oil
2 to 3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 t. red pepper flakes
1/2 t. cumin
1 lb. green beans, stem ends picked
1 lemon for zesting
Salt to taste

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

Whisk together the olive oil, garlic, cumin and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Add the green beans and toss by hand till they’re uniformly coated. Put them in your hot grill basket and cook until tender, about 7-10 minutes.

Remove to a serving dish, season with salt and finish with freshly grated lemon zest
