I’ve been getting a lot of use out of my grill basket lately. Grilled zucchini, summer squash and asparagus are the usual suspects, but last week I grilled green beans.

YES!

Grilled green beans are totally a thing and they are crispy and tender and delicious. They’re basically replacing french fries. Okay so not really but in our house they are loved.

I’ve always loved fresh green beans. I eat them uncooked and plain, roasted or pickled – not a problem. But these grilled beans are so easy and delicious I just had to share. Three ingredients and a grill is all you need.

TO MAKE THESE GRILLED GREEN BEANS YOU WILL NEED:

  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh green beans
  • 2 teaspoons light olive oil
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons garlic herb seasoning – or use your favorite. 

First, preheat your grill and grill basket [affiliate] to 400°. Meanwhile clean, pat dry and trim the green beans.

Next, place the clean and trimmed green beans into a large bowl.

Next, drizzle with 2 teaspoons of olive oil. I’m using a regular light olive oil, but other infused oils would work too. Then toss those beans until coated.

Lastly, throw them directly into the hot grill basket and close the lid, grilling for 4 to 5 minutes. Don’t stray too far because these will brown and cook quickly.

Toss them around every few minutes until the bean form a delicious grill marks in spots.

Use tongs and transfer the grilled green beans back to the same mixing bowl. Sprinkle with the garlic herb seasoning, tossing to combine.

The moment I was done shooting the photos, my oldest daughter and I inhaled these like they were the last green beans on earth.

Sometimes it’s the simple recipes in life that can be the most delicious amiright?
