Grilled Green Beans

I love the taste of grilled food and I equally love washing as few dishes as possible. I have a grill basket, but I have to clean it and my children seem to always find the char marks and refuse to eat that piece of food. Enter aluminum foil, a great way to grill vegetables and you get to throw it away! Make sure you buy the long foil, short pieces won’t work here.

This recipe makes a lot of green beans! I make extra so we have leftovers for dinner the next night or I put the green beans in a salad.
  • 2 lbs green beans
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  1. Prep the beans: Trim ends of green beans, toss in a bowl with olive oil and Kosher salt.
  2. Prep the grill: Turn burners to high, close lid and allow to preheat for 10 minutes. You probably already have the grill going with the rest of your dinner anyway. Take a large piece of aluminum foil, approximately the size of a baking sheet, and crimp the edges on all sides, making it function like a tray. Turn burners down to low. On my grill the foil would cover 2 grates, so those two I turn to low.
  3. Get grilling: Place foil on the grill and add green beans. Using tongs, move beans around, every 5 minutes or so. Total grilling time will be 15-20 minutes and they will still be crisp tender.
  4. Happy Cooking!
