A great alternative to fast-food French fries, and wonderful as a TV snack or after school!


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F
  2. Wash, dry well, and trim green beans.
  3. Put green beans on a baking sheet, and drizzle with olive oil (alternately, use an olive-oil spray).
  4. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Ensure all the beans are evenly coated, and spread them out into 1 layer.
  6. Roast for 20-25 minutes, stirring the beans after 15 minutes, until beans are fairly brown in spots and somewhat shriveled.
  7. Serve hot or at room temperature.
