5 Simple Ingredients
GREEN BEANS: Best when they are fresh, choose green beans that are free of cracks, discolorations, or soft spots. And try to select bunches of the same width and length for even baking.
SEASONINGS: Olive oil and garlic are the basics, but some other seasonings like a dash of red pepper flakes, or one of these DIY blends like southwest seasoning, or homemade fajita seasoning make roasted green beans different every time! A splash of balsamic vinegar will caramelize onto the green beans as they roast giving them a savory flavor.
ADD-INS: Up your side dish game and add fun extras like sliced mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, or slivered almonds.
How To Prepare Green Beans
This simple snack is a low carb way of busting that afternoon snack craving.
- Rinse beans in a colander.
- Slice off the tops with a sharp knife.
- Cook (as per the recipe below).
Roasting Green Beans in the Oven
Toss green beans with olive oil, garlic, parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Place green beans in a single layer on a prepared baking sheet and roast until tender but crispy, about 10 -15 minutes.
Quick Tips & Tricks
- Toss all ingredients in a zippered bag before spreading them onto the prepared baking sheet for an easier toss.
- Cook roasted green beans until they are barely browned on the tops so they retain their ‘snap’ with every bite! Frozen green beans can be used when they are fully thawed and patted dry with a clean paper towel.
How To Store Green Beans
Keep leftover oven roasted green beans in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat them in the microwave or add them to a ginger chicken stir-fry, a sausage egg casserole, a Denver omelet, or a hearty low carb cabbage soup. To freeze leftover roasted green beans, freeze them in a single layer on a baking sheet before transferring them to a zippered bag (this keeps them from sticking together) for up to 6 weeks. Keep raw (unwashed) green beans in the refrigerator wrapped in a layer of paper towels to absorb moisture until ready to use within 2 days (after that, they discolor and become soft).
