  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled and minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste Note 1


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Place beans on a baking tray. Drizzle with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Be sure to move beans around so they are well coated with the other ingredients.
  • Place the baking tray into the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Halfway through cooking time, move the green beans to ensure they brown on both sides.
  • Serve beans with your favorite main dish.


Note 1: I season the beans with ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper. If needed, I adjust the seasoning once they are finished roasting. 
Note 2: Frozen Beans: If you must use frozen beans, defrost them and be sure to wipe the beans dry before roasting. Otherwise, you will have mushy veggies.
Storage Tips:
  • Store them in plastic storage bags in the fridge for about 5 days.
  • To freeze, place beans on a large baking tray in the freezer for about an hour. Then place in freezer-safe bags or use a food saver to prevent freezer burn. They can be frozen for 3 to 4 months.
  • Once cooked, keep well covered in the fridge for up to 2 days.
