- 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.
