Green beans are one of my favorite vegetables. They are mild in flavor, and rich in vitamin C and fiber. Roasting green beans gives them a “meatier” texture. This simple preparation yields a delicious side that can be paired with any main dish.
Roasted Parmesan Green Beans
1 handful of green beans, ends removed (about 5 oz)
1/2 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp garlic salt
pepper to taste
2 tbsp shredded parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Wash and cut off ends of green beans. Spread on a baking sheet and drizzle olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix the beans with your hands to evenly distribute the seasoning and oil. Roast for 20-25 minutes. Afterwards, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
