Roasted Green Beans

If you’re looking for an effortless side dish recipe that goes with almost anything, roasted green beans is definitely the way to go.

I love the flavor and crunch that the sliced almonds add, but you can keep theses basic, OR add any combination of extras that you want. Everything you need to know is right below. 

How to Make It

See recipe card below this post for ingredient quantities and full instructions.

  • Prepare the green beans by trimming off the steam on each end. This can be done more quickly by lining them up and cutting several at once.
  • Drizzle lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet. 
  • Bake at 425° for 15 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with sliced almonds. Toss to coat and redistribute around the sheet. Bake for 3-5 more minutes.

Can you Roast Frozen Green Beans?

YES. Frozen green beans can be roasted:

  • Let the frozen green beans come to room temperature and use a paper towel to absorb any liquid or condensation from them, otherwise they’ll steam in the oven instead of roast. 
  • Roast at 450 degrees (a slightly higher temperature for frozen than for fresh.)

Pro Tips

  • I prefer to use a dark baking sheet as it gives the green beans a bit of a darker roast, but a lighter sheet may also be used. 
  • A squeeze of lemon juice after roasting adds a hint of tangy, fresh flavor.
  • Parmesan cheese, crumbled bacon, shredded Parmesan, sautéed mushrooms, pine nuts, walnuts, and roughly chopped peanuts all make great ingredient additions.

Storage

  • Store in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 3 days.

Oven Roasted Green Beans make a great side dish recipe that's easy to make with fresh or frozen green beans! Custom toppings include almonds, garlic, bacon, lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, and more!

Ingredients

Roasted Green Beans

  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Wash the green beans and pat completely dry. Trim the stem off each side. (You can do this faster by lining them all up and trimming several at a time.)
  • Place them on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper. Toss to coat and spread them out evenly. (Note: A darker baking sheet will give you a little bit more of a darker roast, which is my preference.)
  • Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and add the almonds. Toss to coat, then bake for 3-5 more minutes. Remove and serve!

Notes

  • The nutritional facts assume that 1 Tablespoon of olive oil remains on the green beans and that the other is left on the baking sheet.
  • A squeeze of lemon juice after roasting adds a hint of tangy, fresh flavor.
  • Parmesan cheese, crumbled bacon, sautéed mushrooms, pine nuts, walnuts, and roughly chopped peanuts all make great ingredient additions.

  1. Help with the green beans,please ! I grow beans in my garden but cannot get rid of the strings. Cut both ends trying hard to remove the strings.I even used a potato peeler.But when they are cooked,we still eat nothing but strings and then I end up throwing the beans out.
    What am I do wrong ?

  2. Made a yummy side dish for some sirloin tips my husband grilled this past weekend. The almonds give it a nice crunch!

    • I agree, the almonds definitely provide a nice crunch! I’m so happy you enjoyed this one Maria. Sounds like you had a great meal with the Sirloin tips😋 Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review!

  3. Love it! What type of wine did you use for this recipe?
