Garlic Roasted Green Beans


I wanted to use up the last of the green beans I picked the other day and boiled or steamed green beans just did not sound that great to me. So I decided to roast them instead… oh my.. that was the ticket! And it was so easy to do.

I put my snapped fresh green beans in a bowl and added about 5 cloves of chopped garlic (we LOVE garlic.. :) .. then I drizzled enough olive oil to coat them well. I put them on a large baking tray….




Then put them in a 400 degree oven. I stirred them a couple of times while they cooked. It took about 20 minutes for them to cook. I sprinkled salt and pepper over them when I pulled them out of the oven… all I can say is… DELISH!!

  1. We do this with brussels sprouts that we've quartered, and add rosemary. It's the only way my family will eat them, and they beg for them. I'll be the favorite wife and mom today as they're on tonight's menu. :) Good to know it works with green beans, too. I've heard asparagus is delicious this way as well.
