AN EASY ROASTED GREEN BEANS RECIPE

Roasted Green Beans are the easiest and most delicious healthy side dish that can be served with just about any meal. Roasted with just some olive oil, garlic, and simple dried herbs, they are the perfect side dish to serve with roast chicken and mashed sweet potatoes. PASTA, too.

Friends, Green Beans used to sit super high on my “HELL to the NO” list. You can look around this site and you will find very few recipes with green beans.

However, and this may not work for everyone, but I find that once I figure out a different way to prepare some of these no-way-foods, I start to warm up to them. My feeling goes from ewwwww to ooooooh!

It’s how I learned to eat Brussels sprouts. This Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon is one of the best side dishes, ever

HOW TO ROAST GREEN BEANS

There’s really hardly any work involved here;

  1. Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Trim the green beans. I cut off the end that was attached to the bean stalk.
  3. Arrange fresh green beans on the baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried herbs. Mix around to combine.
  5. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes.
  6. And finally, serve with freshly grated parmesan.

    Gorgeous photos, gorgeous plate. And the food sounds tasty, too. I foresee roasting in the future of the green beans we’ll get from the farm share. Perhaps the kids would learn to love them that way.

    Thanks, Kate!
