green beans never tasted so delicious. the flavor of fresh green beans is enhanced by roasting for a short time in the oven. this side dish comes together very quickly. i served this dish on game night and it was well received.
preheat the oven to 375 degrees. place a sheet pan in the oven for 10 minutes to preheat the pan. trim and clean green beans for four people. place the beans in a bowl and toss with 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt and ground black pepper. i added one sliced white onion and mixed well.
remove the pan from the oven and arrange the beans on the hot pan. bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp and tender.
i found this recipe in Sandra lee’s semi homemade magazine in the January 2011 issue. she also added 2 sliced lemons. instead of sliced onions, she used chopped shallots.
these green beans are a wonderful side dish for fish, chicken or even steak.
