Oven roasted green beans
I just had to snag some fresh green beans at the store the other day. Now, they were not the best price, but they looked oh so beautiful.
If you know me, then I think (or used to think) fresh green beans are disgusting. I don’t know why – but they are waxy and hard to eat.
Not anymore! Now that I have tried these delicious and amazing green beans in the oven, I can’t get enough! Not only is this side dish delicious but it is so easy!
Up until now, green beans was the only veggie that my family just had to have canned. This roasted Green Beans recipe is now our favorite way to cook green beans.
I have made this recipe with fresh green beans and even frozen green beans. They have tasted wonderfully every time.

Roasted green beans taste amazing!
After kicking and screaming (yes, I am a bit dramatic) and refusing to try fresh green beans, I am an addict. 😉 I cooked fresh green beans last night once again and everyone loved them. Every time… SUCCESS!!
They are crispy, but not waxy and the flavor is amazing – The flavor will shock you because we are not using any fancy seasonings here.
I am finally a fresh green bean fan! Woohoo! I think that means, I am a big girl now, right?
- fresh green beans
- olive oil
- minced garlic (Try garlic powder if that is all you have on hand.)
- salt and pepper
How to roast green beans:
First, preheat the oven. While the oven is preheating, cut the ends off the green beans. Make sure they are washed really good.
Second, mix the olive oil and garlic together.
Next, put the green beans on a baking sheet. Make sure they are spread out really good in a single layer.
Grab the bowl with the olive oil mixture and drizzle it all over the green beans. Sprinkle the salt and pepper all over.
Finally, put the green beans in the oven. I like to cook them until they are slightly brown.
Serve and enjoy this simple side dish. It really is so delicious.
Other options you might like to try:
- Season with red pepper flakes if you like a little extra heat.
