Fresh green beans in the winter are hit or miss. Mainly miss. But when chatting with the produce guy at Whole Foods, he assured me that the packaged beans I was eyeing were wonderful. I nabbed up a pound and knew I’d add some roasted green beans to our menu.

Roasting Vegetables

If you haven’t been roasting vegetables, it’s time to start experimenting. The picky hubby had snubbed cauliflower most of his life. That is, until I started roasting florets with Parmesan and bread crumbs. He’s now a legitimate fan.

Roasting helps concentrate a vegetable’s natural sweetness, plus the high heat caramelizes them and creates irresistible crispy spots. I’ve roasted peppers, eggplant, broccoli, onions, Brussels sprouts, and more, but it was time to give green beans a shot.

Roasted Beans

As with the other vegetables I’ve roasted, these green beans were a hit. Taking only slightly longer than steaming, the roasting process made for a much more memorable side dish.  Browned spots indicated the delicious caramelization I spoke of, and the addition of salt, garlic powder and grated Parm contributed even more flavor.

I kept plucking them off the baking sheet when they came out of the oven. Quality control, you know. The whole family gave these Garlic Parmesan Roasted Green Beans a thumbs up!

I plan to try these roasted beans with some defrosted frozen beans. The flavor of Trader Joe’s haricots verts, the skinny French-style green beans, is consistently spot-on. I have to admit being disappointed with the quality of many other frozen brands, but I need a way to add these garlicky gems to our menu more frequently.

If you use frozen beans, please drop a comment and let me know how that works. No matter if you use fresh or frozen, I  hope you give these a try!

  1. Green beans and garlic are the best friends! This is a fantastic side dish.

  2. Good timing, green beans are on sale at Aldi this week and this sounds like a great recipe:@)

  3. I can eat my weight in roasted green beans and the addition of garlic and parmesan makes it even better!

  4. I have never thought of roasting these gems before, what a great idea! They are always on our holiday menu but I have always steamed them and then pan-fried them with butter, garlic and almonds. I can hardly wait to try these roasted with parmesan. Have you tried it with granulated garlic? Not a fan of garlic powder because of the salt.

    • I think what I use must be comparable to granulated garlic as it’s labeled “garlic powder” and my garlic salt is labeled “garlic salt.” I toyed with using garlic salt, but all brands are a little different and I wanted folks to be able to control how much of both garlic flavor and salt. I hope you try these!

  5. Okay YUM. Roasted garlic just makes everything better, amirite? These look like veggies my entire family will actually love!
