You’ll love the great flavor and easy preparation of Trisha Kruse’s fresh side dish. The Eagle, Idaho cook tosses bright green beans in a sweet sauce with a subtle kick.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1-1/2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 medium red onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • 6 medium fresh mushrooms, quartered

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Add the beans, onion and mushrooms; toss to coat.
  2. Place half of the vegetables on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square); fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly. Repeat with remaining vegetables.
  3. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 18-22 minutes or until beans are tender, turning packets over once. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape.
