Grilled Green Beans

A great, simple way to cook green beans! You can grill them in big batches and work your way through them over a week. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but we have a lot of green beans to contend with at the moment.

Serves: A lot

4 lbs Green Beans
12 cloves Garlic
8 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
4 tsp Cumin Seeds
1 Lemon, for zesting

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Start a fire a half hour before cooking your beans (you may be cooking other stuff on the grill, so just know that you’ll need ten minutes of medium-high to high heat for the beans—more about multiple dishes on the same grill next week). Combine olive oil and garlic in a bowl (as well as the red pepper flakes and cumin if using). Swirl the oil around with your fingers to distribute the garlic (and other seasonings). Add the green beans and toss by hand till they’re uniformly coated. Put them in your hot grill basket or on the hot grate and cook till they’re gorgeous and tender. Remove to a serving dish, season with salt and finish with freshly grated lemon zest.
  2. Note: this recipe also does great in the oven at 450 degree heat.
