Grilled Green Beans
Many people would tell you that roasting a vegetable really changes everything for the better – a perfectly crispy, caramelized, and delicious indulgence. But it can get a bit tiring to stand outside doing all that roasting in the heat or heating up the whole house by roasting inside the kitchen in the oven. There comes the savior – try grilling! It brings out the same perfect flavor – in the form of a smokey, browned, and charred vegetable.
Green beans take hardly 15 minutes to cook to perfection and bring to your plate a nutritious, healthy, and delightful meal. They can be paired with almost any other meal, be it chicken, pork, steak, fish, or any kind of seafood. You can also have grilled green beans with salads, scrambles, and wraps. All you need to do is just pair them up with some amazing herbs and spices. Let’s take a look at the recipe below.
