Roasted Green Beans
photo by DianaEatingRichly
- Ready In:
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Wash, dry well, and trim green beans.
- Put green beans on a jelly roll pan.
- Drizzle with olive oil.
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste (I like them salty so I use about 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and about 8-10 grinds of the pepper mill). *Mrs. Dash may be substituted for salt and pepper as desired.
- Use your hands to be sure all the beans are evenly coated and spread them out into 1 layer.
- Roast for 20-25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes, until beans are fairly brown in spots and somewhat shriveled.
- Serve hot or at room temperature.
Our family loves these. What a healthy, nice recipe!<br/>(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.
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.
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 :)
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.<br/>I added parmesan cheese, rosemary, italian seasoning before roasting. I added black pepper to garnish. Everyone loves the recipe and it's still healthy.
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!
