Zero-Points-Value Roasted Green Beans and Fresh Tomato

Total Time

THE best green beans I have ever eaten!!!!! My husband and I were fighting over them!!! He could not believe they were from Weight Watchers. I use frozen whole green beans that I let thaw on the counter, a ton more garlic and fresh basil because we just LOVE those two together. Delish!!!!!!!!

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF. Coat a large roasting pan with cooking spray.
  2. Place green beans in a single layer in prepared pan and coat with cooking spray. Roast until desired doneness, stirring once or twice, about 10 to 15 minutes, 25 minutes if using frozen.
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt and pepper; set aside.
  4. When green beans are finished, remove from oven and spoon tomato mixture into pan; toss thoroughly. Serve hot, room temperature or chilled. Yields about 1 cup per serving.

I cook for a family member who has many diet restrictions for health reasons , so I had to modify this recipe. I did not use the oil spray or salt and left out the basil for personal preferences. Even with the omissions and restrictions this was such a flavourful dish. Thanks for the recipe.

I loved these green beans and will be making them again. Didnt have fresh basil so used dried and added a tad bit more garlic. Tossed the tomatoes with the green beans a couple minutes before they were finished roasting and served immediately. Made and reviewed for Pick A Chef's Orphanage - May 2012.

Have to agree with everybody--delicious!! I used fresh green beans, more garlic and dried basil. Will make this quite often. Made for PAC Orphanage 2012.
