Green Beans – I love it when these show up fresh in grocery stores and the farmer’s markets. I usually buy way too much, but we’ll have a good week of roasted veggies to use them up.
Parmesan – Use either the pre-shredded or the block of real parmesan. I prefer to buy the block of cheese as manufacturers sometimes include additives in the bags of shredded. It doesn’t take much effort to run it through a grater.
Garlic – Load up on garlic for this recipe. My family loves it, so we include a good amount with this.
Step One: Wash the green beans and trim off both ends. Place the trimmed beans in a large bowl.
Step Two: Add the garlic, parmesan, lemon juice and olive oil. Toss well to combine thoroughly.
Step Three: Spread these in a single layer on a sheet pan and bake at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
📌 Expert Tips
- Always use fresh green beans to get the best results.
- Be sure to leave some space on the pan. Overcrowding means that they won’t cook properly.
- Start with washing and drying the beans. This is an important step, so don’t skip it.
- Make an extra batch for meal prep lunches later in the week.
The combination of garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, parmesan, salt, and pepper gives them the perfect complementary flavors.
Add fresh herbs or other seasonings to add even more flavor if desired.
If you see that your green beans have turned out rubbery it’s because they weren’t cooked long enough. It’s a good idea to double check your oven temperature. You may need to add a few extra minutes to the roasting time if they are still rubbery.
Yep! To get the most out of your green beans, you should trim off the ends. This will keep them the perfect texture. Otherwise, you will notice the ends are tougher to eat.
