Simply Grilled Green Beans

Posted by 2 years ago 5 Comments

So sorry I’ve been MIA here on GreenLiteBites. I’ve been cooking and actually snapping lots of photos but finding time to actually post is proving difficult. I’m in the home stretch of FitBloggin‘ planning and this my last year doing so. One of the reasons I’m bowing out is to focus on more on my personal blogs and projects including #wycwyc and GreenLiteBites. I miss recording videos, my cooking with kids series and remember my school lunch posts? I don’t think I’ve posted one of those in years!

Simply Grilled Green BeansAll that to say, bear with me for a few more weeks. My goal is to post at least weekly but I can’t make any promises.

This idea is super duper simple but when I posted it on Facebook and Instagram people seemed to really like it.  It’s more of a technique than a recipe, which is why like to call my posts “ideas.”

Take it and run.

  • Raw green beans, washed and trimmed
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • Kosher salt
  • Skewer

Thread the green beans sideways on the skewer.

Spray both sides with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.

Cook on the grill over low heat about 4-5 minutes a side until the tips just start to brown.

That’s it!

Such an easy way to make a veggie side on the grill.

Fun, too! Even the kids liked this one.

Nutritional info isn’t worth post. Green beans are free. Go to town. ;)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Love the idea! No matter how simple it seems, I wouldn't have came up with it on my own, so I really appreciate that you took the time to post it. Thanks, Roni!

    How cool is that! I am always looking for new ways to cook green beans and this is a definite one to try.

    Fresh green beans are so good in the summer.

    Green beans on the grill is one veg my whole family loves. I think I actually got the idea from you years ago, but it was done in a disposable foil pan (how I still do it). I just plop the beans in the pan (that I wash and reuse until it's blown out, lol) drizzle with the teensiest smidge of grapeseed oil, sprinkle with salt, and let it go on the grill while I'm cooking the protein. So delicious!
