Roasted Garlic Green Beans

I made these to go with the Roasted Rosemary Garlic Potatoes. They are delicious, quick and I think pretty healthy if you go light on the olive oil. This is our favorite way to eat fresh green beans.

  • 1 - 1/2 pounds fresh grean beans
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, sliced thin
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
Snip off the end of the green bean where it was attached to the plant. Toss bean into colander.

Rinse the beans.

I have an old Tupperware microwave steamer that I love to use, but use whatever steaming device you have.

Microwave (or cook however your steamer works) for 5 minutes on high.

Add olive oil to skillet and heat while beans cook. Toss hot beans into skillet, add a little salt and pepper to taste.

Cook beans until they get a little brown on them. Add garlic about 4-5 minutes before you declare the beans done.

Give them a couple of tosses while they are cooking and serve hot.
