  • 1 pound red potatoes, washed and diced
  • 1 cup green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: grated Parmesan cheese for serving


Step 1

Preheat grill to medium/high heat - or oven to 400 degrees, but we suggest a Fuego Grill ;)

Step 2

  • Tear off four sheets of aluminum foil, each about 12x12 inches in size.
  • Place an equal amount of diced red potatoes and halved green beans in the center of each foil sheet.

Step 3

  • In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, olive oil, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper.
  • Drizzle the garlic and herb mixture over the red potatoes and green beans in each foil packet.

Step 4

  • Fold up the sides of the foil around the ingredients to create a packet, leaving a little room for steam to circulate inside.
  • Seal the packets tightly, ensuring there are no gaps for steam to escape.

Step 5

  • Place the foil packets on the grill grates or on a baking sheet in the oven.
  • Grill: Cook for about 20-25 minutes, flipping the packets halfway through, until the potatoes are tender. Cooking time may vary depending on your grill's temperature.
  • Oven: Bake for about 25 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Step 6

  • Carefully open the foil packets, being cautious of the steam.
  • Transfer the cooked potatoes, green beans, and garlic to serving plates.
  • If desired, sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese for extra flavor.

Step 6

Serve the foil packets as a delicious and flavorful side dish alongside grilled meats, chicken, or your favorite main course.
