Simple. Healthy. Easy. DELICIOUS!
Green beans seem to be a staple in our home year-round. This recipe actually came out of the back of an Oprah magazine over two years ago and we make these roasted green beans at least once a week. This recipe really is as easy as it comes and makes for a quick veggie with any meal, or works to accompany a fancier dish should you be entertaining. (I have emailed this recipe upon request every time I have served it.)
Slow-Roasted Green Beans with Sea Salt and Olive Oil
- 3 pounds green beans , ends trimmed (mixing yellow and green beans makes for a nice presentation when entertaining you can also buy beans already trimmed if you prefer)
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (just eye-ball it and drizzle over the beans)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
Preheat oven to 300°. Place beans in one layer on a large baking sheet with a rim. Drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and toss with hands. Place in oven and roast 20 to 25 minutes, until tender and slightly golden in spots. Remove and serve warm or at room temperature.
I have also served these with crumbled feta or goat cheese on top.
