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

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 24, 2011

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!

Yes…this would be a great way to make green beans for Thanksgiving…and they only take a few minutes to roast, so they won’t hog the oven!

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. :-)

They are slightly addicting! Another reason I compared them to candy. You can’t just eat one…just like potato chips too! ;)

Perfect timing! How did you know I picked up a bunch of green beans at the farmers market yesterday? ;)


Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom August 25, 2011 at 8:19 pm

I just knew! ;)

It’s prime time green bean season!!!

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.


Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom August 26, 2011 at 12:24 pm

It should. I would thaw them in a bowl of warm water, then pat dry before mixing up and adding them to the baking sheet.

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!
