The produce section at Jungle Jim’s in Cincinnati is fantastic. The last time we were there I noticed they had Chinese long green beans, so I picked up a pound. I’ve seen them used on cooking shows on TV, but I’ve never cooked them. I figured I’d try out some grilled Chinese long green beans. And I’m glad I did!
I decided to grill the beans along with some radishes and garlic. They have great green bean flavor (I love even regular green beans off the grill), plus they’re fun to look at. They are over a foot long!
(I noticed yesterday that our local grocery store is now carrying Chinese long green beans! Woo hoo!)
Also try my barbecue green beans.
Grilled Chinese Long Green Beans
Grilling these beans until they are a little caramelized really brings out the flavor!
- 1 pound Chinese long green beans
- 6 radishes halved
- 2 cloves garlic minced
- Olive oil
- Preheat grill to medium high.
- Place beans, radishes and garlic in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and toss to combine.
- Place vegetable mixture onto the grill. Grill until starting to char, then flip and continue grilling until lightly charred and the beans are tender.
