Oven Roasted Garlic Green Beans – Grow. Eat. $ave.

If vegetables could taste like candy, these might be the Reese’s of all cooked vegetables. The oven roasting gives the green beans a bit of a caramelized flavor…and the boldness and sweetness from the roasted garlic…and it’s almost like they are candied vegetables. Almost.

(Even though that’s a ridiculous claim, you have to try them and decide for yourself.)

This recipe is very simple…toss it all together in a bowl. Place on foil lined baking sheet. Roast for 8 minutes.

The only thing you’ll be waiting on is the oven to preheat up to the roasting temp!

    I agree 100% with the candy comparison- I’ve made myself sick on these before, I ate so many! We like them spicy, so we add red pepper flakes…so yummy. In the summer we grill them in a basket and they will make you forget about the meat. :-)

    Do you think these will work with frozen bagged green beans? I received a bunch of frozen vegetables a while ago, and a huge percentage of them are green beans! French cut, Italian cut, normal cut.

      They would work just fine. I buy frozen green(whole) beans at Aldi. Toss them in some olive or canola oil with garlic and roast them in the over for about 15 minutes. And agree with Erin, these are the candy of all vegetables!
