Garlic Roasted Green Beans

In the past couple of weeks, I’ve given you quite a bit of sweet (and a little sour) but, not very much on the nutritious front. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to eat cheesecake, cookies, watermelon-lemon ice and drink lemonade everyday but, it (very unfortunately) is not very healthy. So, I’ve decided for nutrition’s sake, to throw some veggies your way. I care about you. Eat up. It’ll keep you healthy.

And, maybe…just maybe, if you eat all your veggies, you can have dessert.

You’re welcome.

Green beans are pretty awesome on their own but, adding inĀ  garlic, salt, and olive oil bring these beans to a whole new level. Once they are roasted, the flavors come together to make one tasty (and nutritious) side dish! The flavors are mild enough however, that these beans will pair well with just about any main dish. The recipe can even be easily double to feed a large crowd or cut in half to feed a smaller or less hungry family. Of course, having left overs is never a bad thing either. Especially when their as tasty as these garlic roasted green beans!

  1. These sound wonderful! I could definitely use this recipe, as I’ve got green beans growing in the garden and before you know it, I’ll be wishing for more recipes like this to cook with them. Thanks for sharing!

  2. They look the ones I always go back for seconds for at our favorite Chinese restaurant. I am getting ready to take them out of the oven the final time. They smell wonderful.

  3. These are DELICIOUS!!! There’s a Chinese restaurant that serves PHENEOMONAL green beans, these are close!! I can eat this alone for a meal!

  4. Very disappointed with the way mine turned out. I followed directions carefully, and cooked them longer than instructed. Husband wouldn’t even eat all that I gave him. So much work, and half ended up in the trash. Thinking I’ll blanch them first before I try this again.

    • I’m sorry they didn’t work out for you Susan. Were they just too crunchy, or were you not happy with the flavor? Either way, I’m sorry that they didn’t work for you. Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback. I hope you can find a way to make the recipe work for you!
