I have a thing for roasted vegetables – as I post more recipes this will become obvious 😉 This recipe for green beans is a nice break from canned green beans and an easy, quick side dish. These beans are good served warm or cold. Just a little bit of sesame oil goes a long way but definitely don’t skip this step. Sesame oil may seem expensive but you never need a lot for flavor because it is strong.
1 pound fresh green beans, ends snapped off
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
1. Preheat oven to 400F
2. Toss green beans, garlic, sesame oil, salt, and sesame seeds, in a bowl. Spread on a baking sheet that has sides (I use a jelly roll pan).
3. Roast in the oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on how crisp you like your beans (longer for more tender green beans).
