I first posted this recipe in 2011. 2011. Can you even believe that?? I can’t. I also can’t believe that it’s been pinned over 20,000 times with that one, sad little picture.
I have a little confession. I made this batch, with the intention of taking their pictures then eating them for dinner, but Bob was out and I ate the whole pan. By myself. Like fries, I just kept going back for more.
It took me long enough to take new pictures, even though I make this garlic green beans recipe often.
GARLIC GREEN BEANS INGREDIENTS
- Green Beans – Fresh green beans, with the ends trimmed off. I also snap the larger ones in half.
- Olive Oil – Extra virgin olive oil.
- Salt & Pepper – The basics. I like to use sea salt & freshly ground black pepper.
- Lemon Juice – The juice of a fresh lemon.
- Garlic – I use the minced garlic that is packed in olive oil, because I always have that on hand. Fresh garlic will work too, of course.
HOW TO MAKE GARLIC GREEN BEANS
First, preheat your oven to 425 degrees and place a foil lined pan into the oven to get hot.
The key to making these roasted garlic green beans really good (& really quick) is to start them off on the hot pan so they start cooking instantly.
Next, trim your green beans and put them in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, salt & pepper, lemon juice, and garlic, give them a toss to fully coat, then let them sit. I usually do at least 30 minutes while I’m prepping other things. The longer the better.
Then, open the hot oven and carefully pour the marinated green beans onto the hot pan. You should immediately hear the sizzle!
Let them cook for 8-12 minutes until crisp tender, or however you like them. I usually give them a toss after 8 minutes and let them cook a bit longer.
TOOLS TO HELP YOU MAKE OVEN ROASTED GARLIC GREEN BEANS
- Lipped Baking Pan – It’s helpful to have the lip so you don’t lose any green beans off the side of the pan.
- Tongs – It’s really easy to toss the green beans with tongs, & it’s especially helpful when they’re hot.
- Minced Garlic – I always keep minced garlic in oil in the fridge because I never remember to buy fresh garlic & it keeps a long time.
- Mixing Bowls – To toss your green beans and let them marinate.
