Oven Roasted Green Beans

As I occasionally mention on Facebook, I get a produce basket from Bountiful Baskets Food Co-op (Psst, are you a Facebook fan?  If not, check me out there on the right sidebar!).  So much produce, for such a great price!  I love it, and I love that gets me trying new fruits and veggies.  Often things that I wouldn't buy on my own.

A little while ago, we got a bag of green beans.  Perfect!  It made me think of summer time.  So I found this wonderfully SIMPLE way to cook them up, with lots of flavor, and still have a bit of that green bean crunch to them.

With Easter coming up in a few days, this would be such a tasty way to add a beautiful green side dish!

  • 1lb green beans, trimmed
  • olive oil (approx 1-2 Tbsp)
  • salt and pepper (be generous!)
  • parm cheese
Preheat your oven to 375degs.  In a bowl, combine green beans, olive oil and plenty of salt and pepper.  You can even taste a bean to see if there is enough pepper and salt.  Drizzle a little bit of olive oil on your baking pan  and spread all the beans out in a single layer.  Bake for about 5 minutes, flip the beans around on the pan (make sure you spread them back out in a single layer) and bake for another 10 minutes.  When they're done, sprinkle with parm cheese.
