That's right... GRILLED green beans. I believe you can cook just about anything on your grill and sooner or later I will prove it! Actually, what I would like to do at some point this summer is to take 5 days and only cook on the grill. And I'm not talking just meat that everyone else cooks on the grill... I'm talking EVERYTHING! :) I hear you can even make mac & cheese on the grill...you know I've got to try that one sooner or later!
Anyway.. I'll ramble all day about what I can and cannot cook on the grill.. the point is.. you have got to try cooking your green beans this way. Fresh green beans on the grill.. there really is no better way to eat them in my book.
If you weren't in the mood to grill these wonderful delicious beans, you can follow all the same directions and then throw them in a preheated oven...I'd say about 400 for 15-20 minutes.
Grilled Green Beans
8-10 oz. green beans, trimmed
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 jalapeno, cut into thin strips
salt and pepper
In a large bowl, toss together all the ingredients; set aside. Fold a 36x18inch piece of heavy foil in half to make an 18-inch square. Bring together 2 opposite edges of foil; seal with a double fold. Fold remaining edges together to enclose the beans, leaving space for steam to build.
Place packet on preheated grill. Grill for 15 minutes, turning once. Remove from grill and enjoy!
