Here is a popular dish we started making at my house recently. It is fun to eat, delicious as cold leftovers (when there are any) and very good for you!
It is also very fun to prepare with your kids. Here is all that is required:
Wash and trim your green beans.
Spray a cooking sheet with extra virgin olive oil, spread the beans in a single layer, and spray the top of them. I like to use a pump-sprayer so I can use my own olive oil and refill it as needed.
Add whatever seasonings you may like and pop them in a hot oven (mine was at 400 degrees on convection). Roast for about ten minutes or until some of the tops are darkening. We seasoned ours with sea salt and all-purpose seasoning. I have used flavors with more pepper and that is also a favorite. You could also use just the salt.
Serve immediately. These will still have a delicious crunch and are a fun finger food for littles. We made ours for lunch and had it with fruit salad, nuts and pasta tossed in olive oil. A few of us tried the beans with the noodles and that was pretty darn good as well.
One of my sisters-in-law has me addicted to roasted vegetables (try cauliflower with the same method – you will never see it the same way). What tips do you have for vegetables?
