How to Trim Green Beans:

  • Get about 15 green beans and place on a cutting board. Line the green beans up in a uniform manner lengthwise. It doesn’t have to be perfect.
  • Take a Sharp Knife and with one holding the green beans and then cut the end off the green beans. I try to get right above the tip and cut.
  • Then line up the other end of the green beans and cut the other side of the green beans.

Roasted Green Bean Variations:

  • Seasoning – Season with red pepper flakes if you like a little extra heat.
  • Parmesan Cheese – Add grated Parmesan cheese to the green beans.
  • Add in Vegetables – For an easy roasted vegetable side dish, mix in slice mushrooms, carrots, or zucchini.
  • Chopped Bacon – Top the green beans with chopped bacon for added flavor.
  • Lemon Juice – Lemon juice is a delicious option to squeeze over the top of the roasted green beans.
  • Italian Seasoning – We like to change the seasoning when we prepare these oven roasted green beans. Italian Seasoning blend is always our first option. It is loaded with flavor and makes the green beans taste amazing.

You will love roasted green beans. Each bite is tender crisp and delicious. This is probably our favorite recipe for roasted vegetables.

Recipe Tips:

  • Prepare Green Beans – Before baking the green beans, we recommend trimming off any bad ends. We also like to make sure they are washed really well.
  • Seasoning – For the best flavor of green beans, season thoroughly. Adding the drizzle of oil helps to make the texture crispy.
  • Baking Green Beans – Bake green beans until they are golden brown. Bake for about 15 minutes and half way through, shake the pan to ensure that all sides get cooked.

How to Store Leftovers:

Leftovers reheat well for lunch or another dinner. For this reason, we often make extra to enjoy later.
