After I learned how to cook green beans properly, they have changed from being my least favorite vegetable to one of my most favorite vegetables. If you’re used to eating boiled, steamed or tinned green beans, these oven roasted green beans will blow your mind. They are roasted, which is undoubtedly the best way to prepare vegetables. They have tons of seasoning, obviously bringing the result up a notch or five. Lastly, the roasting makes them perfectly crispy, which is such an underestimated texture in vegetables. This side dish is honestly so good I could make a bowl to eat as a snack.

How to make oven roasted green beans

Wash your green beans and remove any stems. Add to a baking sheet, cover with vegetable oil, salt and pepper, and insert the tray into the oven. The vegetables roast in 7-12 minutes, depending on how roasted you want them. I prefer them to be a little blacked on the edges for extra crunch. Add roasted green beans to a plate, and serve immediately while warm.

Salt and pepper give the green beans so much flavor, but if you're looking to change it up, try make them with your favorite seasonings. I love green beans with garlic and parmesan, chili and honey, cajun seasoning, thyme or taco seasoning.
