Roasted Green Beans

I have no idea why I have never shared this recipe with y’all because it’s one that I make all the time. It’s easy, there’s no butter, and it’s pretty universally liked, except by my children who want only traditional classic Southern style green beans. But everyone else loves these green beans.

Garlic Green Beans

All you need are fresh French style green beans, the really skinny ones, some grape tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil. That is it. Toss everything on a baking sheet and roast at 425° for about twenty minutes.

Roasted Green Beans

You can serve these green beans with just about anything. I serve them with any meat or pasta dish. They are a little crunchy, very flavorful, and a great midnight snack.
