Looking for a flavorful new grilled vegetable side dish? Try my recipe for Grilled Asian Green Beans and Red Bell Peppers!
If you are a regular reader of Katie’s Cucina you know I love to grill. I’m not intimidated of grilling I’ve learned to embrace it. Living in Florida we grill a lot. Especially when its still 90 degrees out as the rest of the country is finally starting to cool off. I’ve been making these Grilled Asian Green Beans and Red Bell Peppers all summer long. I’ve refined the recipe over the summer and finally took the time to photograph this delectable grilled side dish. I prepped all the veggies, placed them in a gallon-size ziplock baggie and poured in all my seasonings. Sealed it up, mixed the veggies using my hands on the outside of the bag and let it sit until I was ready to grill dinner. You can even prep this in the morning, place it in the refrigerator and when you get home from work your side dish is already ready for you.
I love my STOK® grill. I love that my grill has interchangeable grill inserts. I typically grill chicken on the traditional grill grate and then throw in some veggies into the vegetable basket at least once a week. This is what the green beans, red bell peppers and red onion looked like as I poured my zip lock baggie full of veggies into my vegetable basket.
Just 10-15 minutes later this is how my veggies looked. Nicely cooked with little grill bits. The green beans were still al dente and crisp. The bell peppers and red onions were sweet in taste. I now love grilling green beans! Who would have thought to grill green beans?
