Roasted Green Beans
Roasted Green Beans are so easy to prepare and are a great addition to any meal! Simply toss fresh green beans in olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, and roast! Top it all off with an easy mushroom garlic butter sauce for a touch of gourmet!
Roasted vegetables make me so happy. It was all I could do not to devour all of these roasted green beans before snapping a few pics, and that mushroom garlic butter sauce, oh my gosh. It’s fall on the floor good. Like, you might actually fall on the floor, and that’s okay. Don’t like mushrooms? You have my permission to skip that part. I mean it makes me a little sad, but follow your heart. Do what makes you happy. (But make the garlic butter sauce anyway.)- It’s insane.
How Long Does it Take To Roast Green Beans
-Roasting green beans takes about 30 minutes total. Fresh green beans are tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. They’re then baked in a 425 degree oven for 15 minutes, tossed, and baked for another 15 minutes.
-It’s helpful to redistribute the green beans throughout the roasting pan for even cooking. The beans on the outer side of the pan tend to blacken quicker than the ones in the middle, so switching the middle ones to the outside and vice versa will give you evenly roasted green beans.
Can you Roast Frozen Green Beans?
Frozen green beans can be roasted, however a few additional steps need to be taken:
-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. You can use a microwave to speed this up.
-Place the green beans in a bowl and toss olive oil in the bowl, ensuring that the green beans are evenly covered in the olive oil.
-Brush olive oil over the baking sheet and place it in the cold oven. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Once it’s preheated, remove the baking sheet and add the green beans to the preheated pan.
–Roast at 450 degrees (a slightly higher temperature for frozen than for fresh.) for 15 minutes, check on them after ten minutes or so. Toss them around on the baking sheet and place them back for another 10-15 minutes.

These Roasted Green Beans are tossed in olive oil, sprinkled with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, and topped with an easy mushroom garlic butter sauce!
- 1 pound fresh green beans ends trimmed
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 lemon halved (or 2 Tablespoons lemon juice)
- Sea Salt/Freshly Ground Pepper
- 4 Tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup white wine
- 8 oz. white button mushrooms washed and sliced
- 1 Tablespoon Garlic
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Place the green beans on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Squeeze the lemon halves over the green beans and sprinkle the top with sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Use your hands to toss and coat evenly. Spread the green beans into a single layer on the baking sheet. Add the lemon halves to the baking sheet if desired.
Bake the green beans for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven. Toss and redistribute the green beans around the pan, moving the ones in the middle to the outside, and vice versa. This helps for even roasting. Place the green beans back in the oven for 15 more minutes, checking on them after about 8 minutes or so.
While the green beans roast, melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the white wine, mushrooms, and garlic. Sautee for 15 minutes and pour over the roasted green beans. Serve, and enjoy!
A pinch of red pepper flakes is delicious on top of these green beans as well!
