Oven-Roasted Green Beans

I’ve become a big fan of fresh green beans.  I remember eating canned green beans a lot as a kid and now I won’t even touch them.  Fresh green beans are so much better and now that most grocery stores carry steam-in-bag green beans, they can be made in no time.  I never thought about roasting green beans until I came across this recipe for Oven-Roasted Green Beans.  Fresh green beans are tossed with olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper and roasted in the oven for 8 minutes.  The green beans come out so crisp and flavorful that they will complement any meal.  These don’t take much longer to make than microwaved green beans and they are so much better! 

The ingredients:

Place trimmed green beans in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil.

Sprinkle salt and pepper over the beans and toss until all the beans are seasoned.

Lay the beans flat on a baking sheet and roast in a 425°F oven for 8 minutes.
