Grilled Green Bean Ingredients:
- 1 pound fresh green beans
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Lemon wedges
- Sharp Kitchen Knife
- Medium Sized Bowl
- Cutting Board
- Grilling Basket or Grill Pan (Optional)
Preheat Your Grill:
Preparation time is quite minimal for this recipe, so start by preheating your grill!
Set your grill to medium-high heat (375-415℉). Let your grill preheat until it has reached the proper temperature.
This usually takes about 10-15 minutes, so now is a good time to prepare your green beans!
Prepare The Green Beans:
Start by letting your green beans soak in water, while you mix your seasonings in a bowl.
(If you are using frozen green beans make sure they are fully thawed out) Add the kosher salt, black pepper, cumin, garlic powder, paprika and olive oil into a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Now take your clean green beans and transfer them from the water onto a cutting board.
With a paper towel, pat dry your green beans.
Now take your knife and trim the ends off.
When you trim green beans make sure not to cut them too short!
Add your green beans into your mixing bowl and toss them around until fully coated with seasonings!
Grill The Green Beans:
Once your green beans are fully prepped and ready to go, you can put your grilling basket onto your grill grates.
(If you are not using a grilling basket, you can just cook the beans on the grates directly.)
Give your grilling basket a minute to heat up, then place your green beans into the grill basket.
Now you can begin grilling green beans for about 5 minutes on each side, with the lid closed for the majority of the time.
So it should only take about 10 minutes before your perfectly charred green beans are ready to be served!
Serve Your Grilled Green Beans:
After you cook green beans to your liking, transfer them from the grill, onto a serving tray.
Don't forget to turn off your grill when you're done!
Use your lemon wedges and squeeze fresh lemon juice onto your grilled green beans.
Serve your green beans to your guests immediately, ensuring they are nice and warm!
