Snap, Sizzle, Pop

If you've read this blog for any time at all, you'll know that I have a thing for roasting vegetables. I just LOVE roasted eggplant, onion, sweet potato. Mmm! One veggie I haven't tried roasted is green beans. So, last night I decided to roast the fresh green beans that I got at Fresh Market this weekend. I figured that they would be a good side as well as a nice finger snack, which I'll probably take with me on call tomorrow! I imagine they'd be good with dip as well. They turned out great! These are my entry to Cate's ARF Tuesday at Sweetnicks. Stop by and check out all the great entries. Roasted Green Beans
1 lb. fresh green beans
drizzle olive oil
1 onion, diced
sea salt
garlic powder
Nature's Seasoning Wash the beans and snap the ends off the beans. Place them on a roasting pan along with the onion. Drizzle with olive oi, salt, garlic powder, and seasoning. Stir/toss with hands. Place in 425 degree oven and roast for 15-20 minutes or until wrinkled and at desired texture.

My fave is roasted brussels sprouts - probably the only way I truly like to eat them (so far!)

I have never roasted green beans.
And we always have green beans out our ears in July!
I think I'll have to try this.
We have 2 long rows of beans that have just started growing this week!
Thanks Claire!

Marye - Thanks! All of a sudden I realized it might be a good idea.

Abby - I've never tried that but really would like to.

Jane - Yes, I'm jealous! I guess I'll just have to do with the Farmer's Market.

Gail - Thanks!

RDM - They are good...especially after I didn't get to eat them for a year many, many years ago! You realize what's really good when you don't have it!
