Ingredients

  • 1 lb
    green beans, trimmed
  • 2 Tbsp
    safflower oil (or most any oil that can tolerate high heat)
  • 1 Tbsp
    red wine vinegar (white balsamic, apple cider vinegar will work as well)
  • 1 stick
    extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp
    harissa, to taste (homemade is best!)
  • pinch
    salt

How to Make Grilled Green Beans with Harissa

Step-by-Step

  1. Steam the green beans briefly-about 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat a grill or large grill pan to high.
  3. Place the steamed green beans in a large prep bowl and toss with the vegetable oil. Using tongs, arrange the beans in a [single layer] on the grill and cook until lightly charred, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. In a small, non-reactive prep bowl whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, harissa (to taste) and salt. Note: I added 2 teaspoons of harissa.
  5. Arrange the grilled green beans on a serving platter.
  6. Pour the vinaigrette over the green beans. Serve warm or at room temperature. A garnish of fresh parsley (or cilantro) and/or crispy shallots would not be out of place.
