Green Beans…on the grill!

Anyone else overloaded with green beans this year?  We get some variety of beans in our CSA each week and kudos to them for growing a variety of different species.  The problem, my husband is not a big fan.  He will eat them, but finds them boring…so a simple steam or blanch will not cut it on our dinner plates.

I got out my special pan for the grill and threw on some beans lightly seasoned and coated in olive oil over medium high heat for about 3 minutes on each side.  They were a bit charred, which I prefer, but you could of course cook them just until tender.

Beyond the grilling, I still needed to work on enhancing the flavor.  In addition to salt and pepper before grilling, I grated on some lemon zest and parmesan cheese.  From there, a light drizzle of aged balsamic was the perfect sweet contrast to the zest of the lemon and the grilled flavor of the beans.

Green beans were never something I considered for the grill, but I will definitely be adding them to my list of favorite grilled veggies.

Cheers!
