Never considered grilling green beans? It's a fantastic approach, kissing the vegetables with a little smoky char. Be sure not to skip the step of covering and letting the mixture stand; all steams to perfect doneness in that time. If you don't have a grill basket, grill on a large piece of heavy-duty foil.
3 large shallots or 1 small red onion, vertically sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 teaspoons lower-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
How to Make It
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Place a grill basket on hot grill; preheat for 5 minutes.
Place shallots, garlic, and green beans in a large bowl. Drizzle with canola oil; toss well to coat. Arrange mixture in hot grill basket; cover grill, and cook 7 minutes or until beans are lightly charred, tossing occasionally. Place bean mixture in a large bowl; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Add soy sauce and remaining ingredients; toss to combine.
