These happened by mistake — and we’re so glad they did!! I had pounds and pounds of green beans, was unsure of of what to do with them, had too many things going on at once and little time to get everything done. Voila! These delectable morsels were the result, and now we’re hooked!!
These Green Beans are not for the faint of olive oil! Between the green beans, shallot, garlic and olive oil a caramelization occurs, which turns this dish candy-like.
Simple, quick and delicious! We were hooked!!
ROASTED GREEN BEANS
This is more or less an un-recipe recipe; I think it would be pretty hard to mess it up. If you want to add more or less of something, according to your taste, go for it, but don’t skimp on the olive oil!!
Heat oven to 450 degrees, roast, if that’s an option.
1½ lbs Green Beans (if you use Haricot Vert the cooking time will be decreased)
4 medium Garlic Cloves, thinly sliced
1 large Shallot, approx. ¼ cup, thinly sliced
½ tsp coarse Pepper
¾-1 tsp Kosher Salt
3-4 tbsp Olive Oil
Roast for 15-30 minutes, tossing after 10 minutes and then every 5 minutes, until nicely browned.
