Oven Roasted Garlic Green Beans

These beans are awesome! I have permission to fix these at any time for the family. They said that they even prefer these to the Green Bean Bundles (I never thought I would see the day - lol). These are even easier to prep since you don't have to deal with the bacon wrapping. Don't get me wrong, I love my little green bean bundles, but if you are short on time, these are definitely the way to go. Enjoy!

  • 1 1/2 lb fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 4-5 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1-2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp (6 cloves) minced garlic
  1. Wash and trim beans. Place in large (8 cup) seal-able container.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients together (I used a small glass) and pour over beans. Seal container and shake to coat the beans evenly.
  3. Place in the refrigerator for at least 20 minutes (I left them in there for a couple of hours to marinate)
  4. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  5. Spread beans out on baking sheet in a single layer.
  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes until crisp tender (depending on how well done you like your beans).
