When we do get around to cooking them, one of our favorite ways is to toss them with a little olive oil and lemon juice and season them with garlic, salt, and pepper. We usually just roast them in the oven, but we decided to give grilling a try. I am so glad we did! They turned out amazing! They are a little crispy, tender and garlicky, and slightly tangy from the lemon juice. Good enough to prevent me from eating too many of them raw the next time we grill them so that there are more to enjoy! 😉
- 1 lb fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- In a medium bowl, drizzle olive oil and lemon juice over the top of the green beans, toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with garlic, salt, and pepper. Toss again to distribute seasonings.
- Transfer beans to a grilling basket or aluminum pan. Place basket over medium-low heat. Grill for 20-25 minutes or until crisp-tender and beans have a slight char.
- Serve immediately.
