Sometimes I just SWEAR that I’ve posted a recipe before. I mean I’m so certain that when a real life friend asks me about it I tell them to just search on my blog to find it.
So when Karen, Yankee Bill’s “Work Wife” ( Hi Karen!), said she couldn’t find the Roasted Green Bean recipe that he had been raving about. . . well I had to do something!
So here it is. I actually feel a bit ashamed to call this a recipe-it’s so basic that I am almost more inclined to call it a cooking technique. Whatever you call it, they are delicious!
Roasted Green Beans
- Fresh Green Beans
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
Toss fresh green beans in a bowl with just enough olive oil to give them just a sheen.
Place oiled beans on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
Sprinkle beans with salt & pepper.
Roast in a 425 oven for 25-35 min, or until beans start to wither and turn a bit brown.
Note: This same technique can be used for any veggie-I love broccoli this way. Just make sure the pieces are somewhat uniform in size so that they will cook in the same amount of time.
