Take green beans to another level by roasting them with sliced garlic. Crisp and delicious, you’ll never look at green beans the same way again!
Update August 20, 2015: This recipe has been one of my go-to, quick and easy side dishes for the past 4+ years. It’s a favorite of everyone in my family and guests as well, so it was high time I updated the photos to present an accurate view of what this recipe looks like! Enjoy!
A couple of weeks ago at an Italian restaurant, I had Burnt Green Beans. I didn’t really know what it was when we ordered it, but the waiter said that they were just very well done green beans (aka string beans) sauteéd with oil and garlic. It sounded good to my fellow diners and me! Turns out they were delicious, especially the chunks of garlic dispersed throughout.
I decided to try to recreate the recipe at home and it was a hit! I didn’t cook the green beans for as long as they must have at the restaurant, so they maintained a crispness that I really enjoyed. It was a great side dish for my Soy Ginger Chicken Negimaki as well as numerous dinners I’ve made over the years!
Do you like green beans? How do you like to cook them?
