roasted green beans

I know what you’re thinking. Green beans aren’t that exciting. Well, I hate to break it to you, but you’re wrong. These green beans are¬†exciting. In fact, often times they’re my favorite part of the meal. Unless, of course, they are served alongside these mashed potatoes. I’d probably choose¬†the potatoes just because puddles of melted butter scream my name in the night. TMI? Okay, I’ll stop.

I discovered these green beans a long time ago, and it only recently dawned on me that I have yet to share them with you. Whoops! And while green bean season is on its way out in many parts of our country, but if you can grab some last-minute fresh beans, try this recipe! This makes light, crispy green beans that pop with a sweet roasted flavor. Feeling adventurous? Add a clove or two of sliced garlic during the last 10 minutes of cooking!

roasted green beans

This recipe from Cook's Illustrated is one of my favorites! It's the only way I eat green beans and my love for this recipe is the reason I grow as many beans as I do. :)

Ingredients

1 pound green beans , stem ends snapped off
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Adjust oven rack to middle position; heat oven to 450 degrees. Line rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil; spread beans on baking sheet. Drizzle with oil; using hands, toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with 1/4-1/2 teaspoon salt, toss to coat, and distribute in even layer. Roast 10 minutes.
  2. Remove baking sheet from oven. Using tongs, redistribute beans. Continue roasting until beans are dark golden brown in spots and have started to shrivel, 10 to 12 minutes longer.
  3. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, transfer to serving bowl, and serve.

    I love roasted vegetables! I never thought of roasting green beans, but why not. They look delicious, and anything roasted is amazing.

    Oooh these look great, I’ve never thought of roasting green beans either. And btw, I do think green beans are exciting.

    LOVE this recipe! I have a bunch of green beans that I froze from this summer and as many variations I have made with green beans, I have never roasted them. Looking forward to trying!

    I’ve never tried roasting green beans before, but these pictures convinced me to try them that way next time! They look awesome.

    In my family, we call these green bean french fries because you never eat just one! I love to squeeze lemon on at the last minute and just use the broiler for a quick roast.

    So easy, and they sound so good. I’d much rather have these at Thanksgiving than other green bean options. I’m keeping this one in mind.

    I tried these and they were fabulous. Even better when drizzled with ahomemade balsamic vinaigrette or a carmalized shallot vin. What a fun new way to make green beans.
