The Minneapolis Farmer’s Market has always been a novelty for me. Last Friday I decided to give the Farmer’s Market a weekday try. It was a different world! The aisles of delicious veggies opened up and we cruised through, me salivating over the plump, ripe tomatoes and my boys yearning for any sign of sugar (of course).
I learned that if I swipe my hand over a section of green beans at the Market, the translation is that I want every single container that my hand hovered over. “I’ll take any one of these” became “I’ll take all of these.” Oh well. He was already pouring them into a giant plastic bag and it only cost $5. And I happen to love green beans.
This recipe allows you to enjoy a fresh, crisp non-mushy bean. Roasting adds a perfect crunch to every bite.
HOW TO MAKE PARMESAN ROASTED GREEN BEANS
This green bean recipe is a perfect side dish for any meal, especially around the holidays.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine the green beans, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour into a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring/flipping the green beans halfway through. Serve warm.
Add 3 or 4 minced garlic cloves to the ingredients before adding to the oven. Be careful that it doesn’t burn! If you don’t have any on hand, toss in a teaspoon of garlic powder.
I often use coarse sea salt and fresh cracked pepper – it’s delicious! A dash of red pepper flakes is amazing if you like a bit of spice!
Canned or frozen green beans will work if you don’t have garden fresh on hand. Freshly grated Parmesan is amazing but if you only have grated Parmesan, it’ll do.
For an extra indulgent recipe, throw a few french fried onions or panko bread crumbs on top of the green beans when roasting for a delicious crunch!
Throw in a little chopped bacon to kick the flavor up a notch.
if you are following Whole30 meal program, omit the Parmesan cheese.
