Ingredients for Roasting Green Beans

Oven roasted green beans are a simple side dish for any meal.

Green Beans – Choose fresh green beans, rinse and trim. Fresh are best for texture and taste but you can also roast frozen green beans – the cooking time will remain the same.

Seasonings – Garlic powder adds a little savory flavor to roasted green beans – feel free to add your own seasonings or fresh herbs. Replace oil with melted bacon grease for extra flavor.


  • Add a little bit of lemon zest to the beans before cooking or a squeeze of lemon juice before serving.
  • Once cooked, sprinkle with parmesan cheese or bacon bits.
  • Chopped nuts like almonds or walnuts are great with green beans.

  1. I have been doing green beans like that for years and years. How about something different?Thank You.4 stars

    1. Well Kate, lucky for you! Most of us had never had them this way, and it’s way more delicious than how the rest of us were taught to cook them.

      Thankfully Holly was very gracious and gave you other ways. If it were my blog, I would have been very tempted to say something else. XD5 stars

      1. Christina, I love your reply to Kate! Kate, if you can’t say something nice about a recipe, keep quiet!!!5 stars

      2. Christina, I like the way you think. Your comment to Kate was well written, gentle & kind. I wish we were neighbors!
        Holly, I’ve roasted a lot of veggies but I’ve yet to roast green beans. In the next couple days I’ll definitely give this recipe a go at it. God bless you Holly for all u do 5 stars
