Roasted Green Beans: Ingredients & Substitutions

  • Green beans. You can use fresh or frozen beans. I give instructions on how to use frozen beans in the post and recipe card. I’ve done this often with great results.
  • Olive oil. Any neutral oil works well, I suggest avocado oil or canola oil as substitutions for olive oil.
  • Smoked paprika. I love the smoky flavor of smoked paprika, but you can use regular paprika if desired.
  • Minced garlic. you can substitute ½ tsp garlic powder for the minced garlic. You can also use jarred or freshly chopped garlic depending on your preference.

This roasted green beans recipe is very simple. We’ll walk through how to roast green beans together step-by-step, and don’t forget to watch the video

To being, preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit – I find this is the perfect temperature to get wonderfully crispy green beans without drying them out.

Then wash and trim the ends off of the green beans. Make sure they are dry before proceeding with the recipe.

Next, toss the green beans with olive oil and stir until evenly coated.

Then, add the sea salt, black pepper, paprika and minced garlic and stir until evenly distributed.

* If using frozen green beans: Begin by spreading the frozen green beans in a single layer on a baking sheet and putting them in the preheated oven for about 1-2 minutes to thaw. Once they are warm then toss with olive oil and proceed with the recipe.

Serve

Once the green beans are slightly charred and bright green, remove them from the oven and serve immediately. I suggest serving them with our favorite main dishes:

  • Roasted green beans are a great side dish for Thanksgiving, serve them alongside the best roast turkey!
  • We enjoy them with this meatloaf.
  • Serve them with these baked chicken breasts, homemade chicken nuggets or this hummus baked chicken.
  • They perfectly compliment this balsamic slow cooker pot roast.

Store

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. I don’t recommend freezing baked green beans.

Reheat in the oven or in the microwave.
