I just had to snag me some fresh green beans at the store the other day – 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. Green beans is the only vegetable that my family still has to eat canned… until now. This roasted Green Beans recipe is my now 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.
This is one of my favorite fresh green beans recipes.
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 for probably the one hundreth time. 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? 😉
Roasted Green Beans are definitely the best way to eat fresh green beans. Don't eat canned anymore, because Roasted Green Beans are just as easy and packed with flavor.
- 1 pound fresh green beans
- Olive oil
- garlic salt
- salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Cut the ends off of the green beans and wash them all.
Lay them out on a cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil (don't go crazy here - you don't need much)
Season with the seasonings (you could use any seasoning you like, really)
I used garlic salt, salt, and pepper and they taste great every time.
Cook for 10-15 minutes until they begin to brown - you may want to cook another 5 minutes if you want them extra crispy.
This roasted Green Beans recipe is my now favorite way to cook green beans.
Now, I am thinking about cooking these on the grill – what do you think?
