"A great alternative to fast-food French fries, my family and friends love these as a snack or hors d'oeuvre. No matter how many I make, it's never enough!"

"Our family loves these. What a healthy, nice recipe!
(Update) While I really liked them when I first made these, after a few changes, I am loving them even more. I used extra fine frozen greens beans from Aldi. I roasted them (frozen) at 420 for 40-50 minutes. I also omitted the pepper. I served them with balsamic reduction (just boil a cup of balsamic vinegar for about 20 minutes or until it reduces a little to make a light syrup). Soooo fantastic this way!! Would highly recommend trying them with the vinegar reduction."
"For an extra touch you can finish them off with a little Parmesan and a few squeezes of fresh lemon juice. But they are perfect "as is" too."
"This really doesn't need another five star rating, but I have to give it one anyway! I roasted a mountain of green beans from Costco in a glass baking dish, and didn't measure anything. I used olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, and garlic salt. Yum. It probably took about forty minutes of roasting time Yum."
"Great recipe! It's easier to get the beans to brown if the pan isn't crowded. Another recipe I have says to turn up the oven to 500, so I went with 450. I added about 10 cloves of peeled and lightly crushed garlic and salted the beans once they were roasted. Pure heaven! Thanks."
"What a wonderful treat. Everyone loved this dish. I added sliced Vadalia onions to the green beans, along with Mrs. Dash, which added a sweet taste. This did take me 50 minutes to roast."
"I am not a fan of fresh green beans so I was very wary of preparing these, however, I needn't have been. I did adjust the recipe just a tad, adding grated garlic and parmesan cheese to the beans prior to roasting. I am actually looking forward to making these again - soon. Thanks for posting Seamouse and showing me I, too, can like fresh green beans :)"
"I doubled this recipe and prepared it while we were on vacation -- everyone between the ages of 12 months to 82 loved them! I poured the oil and salt into a 2 gallon ziploc bag, then shook with the beans for even coating. Thanks for sharing."
"i just made these with my thanksgiving dinner and they were great. the only changes i made was to use a little unsalted butter instead of the oil, and i added thinly sliced onions. i ended up cooking them for closer to 45 minutes but they were great! I also made them the night before and they reheated very nicely. these are so good that i kept picking at them even while they were cold in the fridge! thanks for posting!"
"My husband and I love green beans this way! We add some minced garlic too. Definately a keeper!"
"Love these! I agree, no matter how many I make, it's never enough. I use frozen organic whole green beans from Costco with good results. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Wow, these are super! Such great flavor. Next time I am going to try to increase the temp and decrease the cooking time to see if I can get the char flavor but still have crisp tender beans (vs. soft)."
"The family requested these for Thanksgiving and they were the hit of the meal! I don't make any changes to the recipe except for roasting a little longer- full of flavor and never a leftover! I can't tell you how many times I've made them since I saw this recipe. Thank you Seamouse and happy holidays :)"
"Fantastic easy green recipe! After reading the reviews I added a few extra things to make it even better. I replaced the olive oil with some homemade oil and seasoning.
I added parmesan cheese, rosemary, italian seasoning before roasting. I added black pepper to garnish. Everyone loves the recipe and it's still healthy."
"This is one of our favorite recipes. We have it at LEAST once a week and hubby and I can eat about a pound of these each to ourselves! They really do make you feel like you're eating chips or fries but so, so much better!"
"Easy, quick and nutritious. I made 4# that was gone in a flash. Concentrated vitamins and no worries about over/undercooking it. I used the petite frozen ones from Costco that I thawed overnight. It did take longer to cook than the recipe states, but I just kept turning them. A real hit at Thanksgiving. First time they were all gone (had steamed them in prior years). Thanks!"
"Absolute favorite recipe!! We like the original, but we also add potatoes and put it on the grill in a cast iron skillet and cook until potatoes are crispy and that is amazing too!!"
"I am completely suprised! I would never have thought about roasting green beans, but they turned out great! Crispy and kind of sweet when they were done. Even the dog ate the one that fell on the floor. Thanks!"
"These were awesome :) I made it with pot roast, mashed potatoes and pan mushroom gravy. They turned out fantastic! I used bacon fat instead of the oil with Mrs. Dash and Lawrys black pepper. They had such an amazing flavor, definetly something I'll be making again! Thanks for the recipe!"
"Such an easy recipe. I used garlic salt instead of regular salt, but otherwise left the recipe alone. Turned out great! Thanks for sharing!"
"Delicious! Served these alongside General Tso's, white rice and pan roasted broccoli. Served with a side of sauce made with 1/4 cup of ranch dressing and 1 t. of wasabi powder."
