We LOVE roasted green beans and they are super simple to prepare.
Preheat Oven to 400F
Just prep the beans (remove any stem ends) , wash and pat dry. Lay them on a baking sheet and toss them with 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of oil, depending on how many beans you're cooking. Add a little salt and pepper, toss to coat the beans.
Place the pan in the hot oven and roast the green beans for 20 - 25 minutes until browned and crisp-tender.
We let them cool and eat them like French Fries.
