green beans recipe

I love vegetables. Sometimes they can be repetitive. I wanted to switch up the basic butter and green bean recipe. I decided to season and bake them. They turned out delicious! It was hard to tell they were the same crunchy green beans we always eat. This is definitely a keeper for future meals.

Snap off ends, rinse and dry the green beans. Make sure they are dry!

Baked Green Beans recipe

Line the pan with aluminum foil. Sprinkle the olive oil on the green beans. I used enough to cover both sides...about 2-3 tablespoons

Add the other seasonings. I guesstimated and sprinkled a coat enough to cover one side. Shake the pan to coat both sides. 

Heat the oven at 425. Make sure the green beans are spread out and not overlapping. Bake for 10 minutes, shake pan to turn and bake an additional 5.

Remove from oven. If needed, sprinkle more grated cheese on them.

Another wonderful lunch I make are my basil pizzas. I use a tortilla by the brand Flatout. It only has 90 calories and a big dose of fiber. I add some marinara sauce, sprinkle mozerella cheese on top and bake at 350 for about 3-6 minutes. I then cut basil leaves from my basil plant that was purchased at my local Farmers Market.

And you have a healthy and tasteful thin crust, flatbread pizza! It definitely fills your greasy pizza craving!

  1. I made the green beans and the taste is wonderful but I thought they would be crunchy after baking and mine are quite limp. Should they have been crispy/crunchy? Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    1. So glad you enjoyed the taste!
      They cook depending on how much oil you apply and how hot your oven is.
      If you want them crispier, keep the green beans in the oven longer!
      I would keep an eye on them so they do not burn, but it is your preference if you like them crispy or soft!
      Thank you for your comment!

        1. I think frozen green beans would work…however, they would not be crispy and snappy like these are…which is half the goodness of them alone!
