Remember when mom made you eat your greens? Well, we're betting they didn't taste like this.

Next time dinner calls for something extra, whip up this green bean recipe. A drizzle of olive oil, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and a brisk turn on the grill is all it takes to create a quick, healthy side that pairs perfectly with your meat of choice.

What You Need:

  • 1 lb fresh green beans, washed and trimmed

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

How to Make It:

  1. Wash and trim 1 pound of fresh green beans. In a large bowl, toss the beans with 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Season them with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.

  2. Grill the beans over medium heat, tossing occasionally, until crisp-tender and charred in spots, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Transfer the beans to a serving bowl, and drizzle on more olive oil, and season with additional salt and pepper, if you'd like. Toss the beans once more and serve. Makes 4 servings.
