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.
Green beans are pretty awesome on their own but, adding in 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!
