Roasted Green Beans


Servings: 4-6
  • 2 lbs green beans
  • 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil (or just enough to lightly coat beans)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste, may substitute with Mrs. Dash if desired)
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper (or to taste, omit if using Mrs. Dash)
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Wash, dry well, and trim green beans.
  • Put green beans on a jelly roll pan.
  • Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste (I like them salty so I use about 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt and about 8-10 grinds of the pepper mill). *Mrs. Dash may be substituted for salt and pepper as desired.
  • Use your hands to be sure all the beans are evenly coated and spread them out into 1 layer.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes, turning after 15 minutes, until beans are fairly brown in spots and somewhat shriveled.
  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
