Roasted Green Beans

April 11, 2024

Fresh green beans are a summer staple. They are easy to grow yourself, provided you can keep the neighborhood critters out of them. Mine were eaten by the local rabbit family. I replanted twice, and for now they seem to be staying out of them. Instead they are eating my swiss chard, beet greens and carrot tops. Thank goodness for the farmers' market!

Green beans are fun because there are lots of tasty ways to prepare them. It has been unseasonably cool here, so this time I tried roasting them for a change of pace.

Roasted Green Beans
Preheat oven to 400. On a cookie sheet place:
1 1/2 lbs. green beans, washed and ends trimmed
Drizzle with olive oil,
sprinkle with:
sea salt
1 clove garlic, minced
splash of balsamic vinegar
Roast in oven about 30 min., stirring once or twice, until beans are browned, shriveled, and slightly crispy.
