Recipe for Roasted Green Beans

By December 4, 2013 December 7th, 2016 Oven, Recipes

Sick of eating steamed, canned, and frozen vegetables?  Check out this amazing recipe for roasted green beans.  I absolutely love this simple, roasted green been recipe, and my family does too.

roasted-green-beansAll you need to do is combine fresh green beans with a little bit of oil, salt, and pepper and let your oven take over.  Easy-peasy.

If you’ve never roasted a vegetable before, you need to add it to your side-dish-cooking-repertoire.  Roasting vegetables just makes them so much sweeter than steaming does.  I swear my husband and daughters will eat so many more vegetables roasted than they will raw or steamed.

While this recipe is for roasted green beans, you can sub any veggie that you like.  We also love roasted carrots, broccoli, potatoes, sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, asparagus, and beets.  (If the vegetable is particularly hard, just lengthen the cooking time until it’s nice and soft.)

Feel free to get creative and whip up a big roasted vegetable medley, too.  For holiday dinner parties, you can even roast a big batch ahead of time and reheat in the microwave or oven the day-of.

Use olive oil instead of canola oil, and minced garlic.

I use olive oil and melted butter to toss beans in . . . then sprinkle with garlic powder halfway through baking or broiling on low! It’s great anyway you make them.

I love to roast asparagus and Brussels Sprouts, they are fantastic that way, Roasted corn is good also. I use olive oil, salt, and pepper. I can’t wait to try the carrots and green beans.

I like to roast broccoli. I use safflower oil, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder! The cheese adds salt. So good!

I love roasted Brussel Sprouts. I use olive oil, salt and pepper, or Montreal steak seasoning. Once they start to brown they are caramelizing. They come out almost sweet. I call them my Brussel sprouts candy!

Jan, before cooking? I don’t see why not…

I have so many vegetables right now. I was wondering the same thing, Jan. Jill, I shall try to freeze them. I hope they turn out well.

roasted Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes diced using olive oil. My son and husband can’t get enough of them. But I never thought of doing green beans in there.
