Grilled Long Beans

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 79


1 pound green beans or long beans
2 tablespoons sesame oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted


1. Preheat the grill to high.

2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the beans until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Refresh under cold running water and drain well. Cut each bean into 8- to 9-inch lengths and tie each into a loose knot (see Note). Let dry on paper towels.

3. When ready to cook, preheat a vegetable grate (if using) for 5 minutes. Brush the knotted beans with sesame oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Arrange on the hot grate and grill, turning with tongs, until nicely browned, 4 to 6 minutes in all. Transfer the long beans to plates or a platter, sprinkle with the sesame seeds, and serve immediately.

Serves 4

Note: If using regular beans, thread them, 4 or 5 at a time, crosswise on short bamboo skewers that have been soaked in cold water for 1 hour and drained. Young, slender green beans don’t need to be parboiled.
