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.
- 2 lbs green beans
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tsp Kosher salt
- Prep the beans: Trim ends of green beans, toss in a bowl with olive oil and Kosher salt.
- 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.
- 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.
- Happy Cooking!
