sesame seeds and thinly sliced green onionsfor serving (optional)
In a bowl, toss the green beans with the canola oil (1 tablespoon) andsalt 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.
