A recipe for oven-roasted parmesan green beans makes an ideal side dish for a healthy dinner. This dish combines the freshness of green beans with the delicious flavor of Parmesan, making it ideal for boosting the flavor profile of any meal.
1 lb. fresh green beans, washed, trimmed and patted dry
3 large cloves garlic, finely minced
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 T. high-quality extra virgin olive oil
3 T. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat™ baking mat. Set aside.
In a large bowl, toss the green beans, garlic, and olive oil together until coated. Spread the seasoned green beans on prepared baking sheet into a single layer without crowding. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
Place the baking sheet in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or just until the beans are crisp tender, turning once halfway through.
Remove from oven and transfer beans to a serving platter or bowl. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese right before serving. Enjoy!
Roasting the green beans assures they will be crisp tender and full of robust flavor. As an added bonus, the high-quality extra virgin olive oil and freshly grated Parmesan cheese greatly enhances the natural appeal of this classic side.
Tip: The green beans will become mushy if roasted too long. Test for doneness after 10 minutes and adjust final cook time accordingly.
