  • In a bowl, toss the green beans with the canola oil (1 tablespoon) and salt and pepper (to taste).
  • Heat a grill pan until flaming hot and add the green beans. Or, add the green beans to a grill basket and place on a medium-hot charcoal or gas grill. Grill until green beans get some nice charred color and are slightly soft, tossing occasionally (5-10 minutes, depending on how hot the grill is).
  • Meanwhile, whisk together the mayonnaise (1/2 cup), gochujang (1 tablespoon), soy sauce (1 teaspoon), and toasted sesame oil (1/8 teaspoon).
  • Serve green beans tossed with the gochujang mayo and topped with sesame seeds and green onions.


  • Don't have a grill or grill pan? No problem! You can sautè the green beans or roast them as an alternative.
  • Have leftover gochujang mayo? Use it on sandwiches, on eggs, tacos, or as a dip for fries.
  • Variation: try using broccoli, asparagus, cauliflower, or other veggies in place of the green beans.
