1. Insert the plates on their grill side. Preheat the Cuisinart® Griddler® to High with the unit closed.
2. Remove tips and tops from green beans. Put into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to coat. When Griddler® is hot, arrange half the green beans on the bottom grill plate. Close and grill for 5 to 6 minutes. Using a pair of heatproof tongs for nonstick cookware, remove the green beans and transfer to a bowl.
