I love summer time because we can grill out more easily. Living in Iowa limits the outside grilling months dramatically because honestly—who wants to go dig the grill out from underneath the snow piles? Just wait till I make the move to Texas–baby–the grilling will be on all the time!
But I digress. Did you know that you can grill just about anything and make a tasty addition to your meat entree? On a recent grilling night we grilled up some green beans and mushrooms and they were delightful.
Foil pack grilling makes just about any vegetable perfectly cooked. I had a few mushrooms in the fridge that needed to be used up so I tossed them in and they were a fabulous explosion of flavor.
- Place one pound of fresh green beans on a large piece of foil. ( I de-tailed them but left them whole.) I also added a few sliced mushrooms at this point. Onions would be another great addition.
Drizzle with a bit of olive oil and salt and pepper to taste. Other herbs and seasonings added at this point would give different flavors.
Seal foil package up tightly and crimp edges so the yumminess does not escape.
Cook on top grill rack for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and open package very carefully —hot, hot, hot!!! Serve piping hot !
