The recipe is extremely easy to make and frees up the oven since were using the grill. If it’s too cold out or you don’t have access to a grill, you can blister the beans in the oven, they will still turn out delicious. A quick way to do this is to toss them in some aluminum foil you don’t necessarily need a tray for this just wrap them up sprayed with some olive oil and squeeze them in the oven where there’s space.
The beans need to be carefully handled on the grill as to avoid them slipping through the grates. Grilling the beans also adds a nice char and ups the flavour just a little. You can place foil on the grill to avoid having any beans fall through if you prefer to keep things safe.
We went with some Asian flavours like garlic chili sauce and soy sauce to marinate the beans and garnished the dish with caramelized onions, roasted peanuts and sesame seeds. We promise these flavours will pair nicely with your mains and the charred taste is what really makes this dish!
Try not to over grill the beans, I like to serve my beans with a nice little crunch! If you make any of our thanksgiving recipes be sure to share and tag us! @thecommunalfeast #thecommunalfeast
