Grilling green beans adds a terrific depth of flavor to this dish, thanks to the caramelization from direct heat. If you don't have a grilling basket, just be sure to arrange the beans perpendicular to the grate so they don't fall through.



Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Preheat a grilling basket, if using.

Toss green beans with 1 tablespoon oil, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Place green beans in the grilling basket or directly on the grill grate and cook until crisp-tender and charred, tossing occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes.

Let beans cool slightly and then toss with almonds, ricotta, basil, lemon zest and juice. Drizzle with additional olive oil, if desired. Serve immediately.


To toast almonds, place in a dry skillet over medium heat and cook until fragrant and golden, shaking the pan frequently, 3 to 5 minutes.
