Roasted Green Beans

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!


Roasted Green Beans

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


  • 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!


  • 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.
