Crispy Roasted Green Beans Ingredients
GREEN BEANS: Be sure to wash and trim them. To save time, you can buy them ready to cook in the refrigerated produce section of your local grocery store.
OLIVE OIL: A little bit of olive oil will keep the green beans a little crispy and prevent them from turning mushy.
GARLIC: We love making roasted green beans with garlic, but you can omit if you’d rather. Or, feel free to add extra garlic if that is more your thing.
SALT & PEPPER: Add as much or as little to the garlic roasted green beans as you like.
