Oven Roasted Green Beans w/ Garlic


A side dish that is as easy as can be and compliments anything grilled or BBQ perfectly!


I love almost any kind of vegetable that has been oven roasted.  There was a time a few years back, I would make a huge batch of oven roasted veggies and have them almost everyday for lunch!

Roasting brings out the natural sugars in the vegetables and kicks them up a notch in the flavor department.  Some important rules for oven roasting are to make sure whatever you are roasting is DRY...if there is moisture, you will end up steaming instead of roasting and DO NOT over crowd the pan!   Try to get everything in a single layer with a bit of space between. Another great tip to insure perfect roasting is to make sure you allow your oven to get up to temperature before you put whatever you are roasting inside.
