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


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a sheet pan with non-stick spray and set aside.
  • Place the green beans on the sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, and pepper. Be sure to move beans around so they are well coated with the ingredients.
  • Be sure to move beans around so they are well coated with the ingredients. Also ensure the beans are in a single layer and spread out on the pan. They should have a bit of room between the beans so they roast properly.
  • 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.
  • After 12 minutes, taste test for doneness. The beans should be crisp with a hint of golden brown. Roast a bit longer if needed. Re-season if needed.
  • 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.
Be sure to check Expert Tips and FAQs above with important tips and questions that can help make a delicious recipe.
  • Add some crispy bacon and sautéed onions. A perfect way to use leftovers too.
  • Sautéed mushrooms would be delicious.
  • For a nice change, season the beans with some seasoning salt or Cajun seasoning.
  • Looking for Greek flavors, add ½ teaspoon of dried oregano and marjoram to the veggies.
  • Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on the beans for the last 5 minutes of roasting.
  • Drizzle with some lemon juice at the end of roasting.
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.
