I like to serve veggies with every single meal. These super easy to make roasted green beans are one of the side dishes I make most often. I love serving them with baked salmon and this tender pork loin roast. During the holidays, they are perfect served with this prime rib roast recipe.

Hi everyone, I am Kathy from Lemon Blossoms. I am so happy to be back as part of the contributor team at The Salty Marshmallow. Roasting vegetables is one of the easiest ways to add lots of flavor to otherwise bland veggies. Roasting green beans quickly at a high temperature produces incredibly flavorful green beans that are crisp tender and a bit charred.

How To Make Roasted Green Beans

Making oven roasted green beans could not be any easier than this! All you need is a handful of simple ingredients, a single sheet pan and only 20 minutes!

  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and grab a large, rimmed sheet pan. I like to line mine with aluminum foil or parchment paper for easy clean up.
  • Place the trimmed green beans on the baking sheet, sprinkle salt and pepper, the garlic and drizzle with olive oil.
  • Toss the green beans until well coated and spread them evenly on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until the green beans are tender and slightly brown, tossing once during the cooking time.
  • Remove the green beans from the oven and sprinkle with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

What Is The Difference Between Green Beans And String Beans?

Green beans and string beans are essentially the same. Many years ago, a varietal of the bean used to have a notorious fibrous string that ran along the seam of the bean pod. This particular varietal was named string bean. Most of the green beans sold at markets today don’t have the string anymore. This roasted green bean recipe can be made with any type of green bean.

How To Trim Fresh Green Beans?

Green beans have tips on each side. One is soft and edible and the other, the stem is a bit rough.

Grab a handful of green beans and line them up on a cutting board so all the stems are on the same side. Using a sharp knife, slice them in a single cut all the way through.

Tips and Notes About This Green Bean Recipe

  • I like to garnish my roasted green beans with chopped parsley and lemon slices. You can use any other fresh herbs like dill or basil.
  • This green bean recipe calls for fresh garlic. Although nothing compares to the flavor of fresh garlic, in a a pinch you can use garlic powder.
  • For perfectly crunchy oven roasted green beans, make sure your green beans are completely dry before roasting them. Also, coat them well with oil and place them on the baking sheet in a single layer for even cooking.
