i’m pretty sure not everyone who reads this is as excited about a green bean recipe as i am. in fact, it sounds pretty lame, i know.
but if you’ve never “roasted” your green beans in the oven before…you are most definitely missing out!
not only is it a super easy way to cook them, but there is virtually zero clean up. no slaving over a stove, no straining the beans, and no blasted “hand wash only” calphalon pot to clean out afterwards! (i told my husband the only reason i would ever want my own cooking show is because they have a full time staff hired just to clean up the kitchen when they’re done!) haha. :)
okay, if i haven’t sold you on the ease factor of this recipe, let me just tell you how delicious they are. they start to caramelize when you bake them which creates a slightly crispier texture than a boiled green bean and is full of flavor. if i don’t put away left overs immediately, i will stand over the baking sheet and eat the whole tray of green beans one-by-one, cold, like it was candy! that’s how good these are.
if you have a picky, veggie-phobic child…try this recipe. seriously.
out with the green bean casserole this thanksgiving and in with these caramelized green beans!
