Ingredients And Variations

Green Beans: Fresh greens are best, but if they aren’t available, feel free to use frozen as long as they are thawed and patted dry so the oil, seasonings, and parmesan adhere properly.

Oil: Any oil will work. Coconut oil, sesame oil, avocado oil, and if you have leftover bacon grease, that will give roasted green beans a smoky flavor.

Seasonings: Green beans have a mild sweet flavor, so all kinds of seasonings will complement them! A little bit of garlic powder, smoked paprika, or an Italian seasoning blend infuses new flavors into green beans. In a pinch for time? Toss green beans in a half cup of carb-friendly Italian dressing and skip the oil and seasonings!

Variations: Make a colorful and nutrient-rich veggie medley and toss in some broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and bell peppers with the green beans! Steam denser veggies like broccoli and cauliflower for a couple of minutes in the microwave before adding them to the green beans in Step 2.

How To Roast Green Beans In Oven

  1. Prep green beans by rinsing, trimming, and drying them.
  2. Toss green beans with the remaining ingredients.
  3. Roast in a single layer until tender crisp (as per the recipe below).

For Crispy Beans!

Place green beans under the broiler for about a minute so they’re extra crispy!

Recipe Tips

Prep green beans by lining them up on a cutting board with the hard ends on one side and slicing them off. This can be done even up to two days in advance. Simply keep them in a covered container with a clean paper towel to absorb moisture until you’re ready to use them.

How To Serve and Store Oven Roasted Green Beans

As a snack or appie, serve oven-roasted green beans with homemade ranch dressing dip and some chicken bites. Green beans are a colorful and tasty side dish to Air Fryer salmon, pan-seared pork chops, skillet chicken thighs, or use them simply in an omelet or quiche.

Keep leftover oven-roasted green beans in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet (so they don’t stick together) before transferring them to a zippered bag for up to two months.
