I bring you the world’s easiest roasted vegetable to put on your Christmas table this year. Garlic roasted green beans.
I have never been a fan of green beans until Brandy and Gina visited me in October and have since converted me to be a green bean lover. In fact, ever since then, we have had roasted green beans at least once a week.
I should have known that roasting it would be the way to my heart. With most veggies, roasting is the only (and best) way to eat them. Take roasted brussels sprouts, for example, or roasted broccoli or just all the roasted vegetables your heart desires. Pretty much any veggie roasted will be a winner and a new favorite.
These garlic roasted green beans will be your new favorite quick and easy side dish to throw together if you need a vegetable at the dinner table. Super easy and if you’re a green bean hater like me and always had them mushy in like a green bean casserole or whatever — GET ON THESE!
They will change your views on green beans.
Just like roasting brussels sprouts changes everyone’s views of those little cabbage heads.
The one thing that does get to me about roasted green beans though is the fact they get all wrinkly when they’re roasted. Hahaha, I guess that’s a nice visual for those of you who may not know what to look for to make sure the green beans are softened and cooked all the way through.
Garlic Roasted Green Beans
Servings are adjustable but please note that results, timing, and cookware may vary when adjusting servings.
- 1 pound green beans rinsed and ends trimmed
- Olive oil
- Kosher salt
- Garlic powder
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place trimmed green beans on a large baking sheet and drizzle olive oil all over.
- Sprinkle kosher salt on top then garlic powder (I would say start with 1/2 teaspoon and 'up' the amount if you feel you want more).
- Using your hands, push the green beans around to make sure everything is coated in oil and seasonings.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until you see green beans are blistering and wrinkled. Toss or shake the pan halfway through the cooking process.
- Remove from oven once done cooking and transfer to a large serving platter.
