This recipe is from "The Roasted Vegetable" by Andrea Chesman. Roasted vegetables are extra delicious because the sugars in the vegetables caramelize in the oven giving the vegetables sweetness and crunch. These beans are irresistable and may be served as a side dish, snack or hors d'oeuvre


  1. Preheat the oven to 500 degrees F. Lightly oil a large shallow roasting or half sheet pan.
  2. Arrange the green beans in a single uncrowded layer in the pan. Drizzle the oil over the beans and roll until evenly coated.
  3. Roast for about 15 minutes until the beans are well browned, shaking the pan occasionally for even cooking.
  4. Transfer the beans to a serving bowl and sprinkle with salt to taste. Serve immediately.
