In Epi’s 3-Ingredient Recipes series, we show you how to make great food with just three ingredients (plus staples like oil, salt, and pepper).
Crisp-tender grilled green beans on a bed of creamy whipped ricotta is the ultimate summer side, super-simple but elegant enough for company. Add some grilled bread for a fun family-style appetizer.

Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed

2 cups whole-milk ricotta

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

Freshly ground black pepper

Lemon wedges (for serving)

Instructions

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat (or heat a grill pan over medium-high). If using a grill, arrange green beans in a grill basket and place on hot grill. Cover and grill, turning once halfway through, until beans are lightly charred and crisp-tender, about 8 minutes. If using a grill pan, cook green beans directly on pan, tossing occasionally, until lightly charred, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, whip ricotta, 3 Tbsp. oil, and 3/4 tsp. salt in a large bowl until smooth and fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Spread whipped ricotta on a serving platter and arrange charred green beans over. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with lemon zest; season with salt and pepper. Serve with lemon wedges alongside.
