Roasted Green Beans

I know I just posted Bacon Wrapped Green Beans, but when the garden is producing...well, you gotta cook it, can it or freeze it!  I tried freezing green beans from my garden last year, and they were disgusting.  I don't have a canner, so I can't can them (you are not supposed to use the 'water bath' method for low acidic items like green beans.  Botulism.  Not good.)  So, that leaves cooking them (and giving them away!).  Thankfully, most of the house likes green beans, and when they are roasted like this, they are pretty darn good.  This is also another recipe from Jessica at How Sweet It Is.  What can I say, she makes veggies tasty.

Roasted Green Beans from How Sweet It Is

1 lb fresh green beans

drizzle of olive oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 425.

Add green beans to a bowl and drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil on them. Mix with your hands to coat each green bean. Lay them on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast for 25-30 minutes, flipping once during cooking.

They aren't the prettiest things in the world, but they are very good!  The roasting brings out the sweetness of the green bean, and they get a little crisp.  I can't believe I was just shoveling them in like french fries.  No, they don't taste like french fries, but they are quite yummy.  You know, for a vegetable and all.
