Roasted Green Beans

I have the past two years taken to roasting green beans.

Here is how I do it.

Clean about 2 cups fresh green beans and place in a covered iron chicken fryer sprayed with olive oil spray. On top put one diced red sweet pepper along with one small onion diced and one minced clove garlic.

Salt well then spray well with cooking spray. Next add on top about 5 to 6 slices lemon.

Cover and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. When they come out take off the lemon, stir well and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.

The green bean actually brown a bit on the bottoms and hubby and I like that. They may be cooked too long for some but we find they are perfect.

Something a bit different eating browned green beans.

    This looks great. Majority of our family members like their green beans to be soft too, so this one is a must-try. Thanks for the tip!

    eatingclub and Kalyn,

    Hi. We like them browned and cooked longer.

    Not that I dont like them other ways too, I do, but this is a bit different.

    I love roasting veggies too. I haven’t tried green beans though, what a great idea.
    ps – I did my first batch of canning yesterday. Tomato sauce from Small Batch Preserving. Hopefully I did ok. I will be more confident and coordinated next time now that I have done it once.
    I am giving some to my mother, hopefully I don’t end up an orphan because of it!

    I ate green beans way too much during my childhood (that probably caused my dampen enuthasiam later on). But none of them prepare in such a wonderful way like yours! Yes, I think they cooked perfectly… really want to try now 😀

    I’m trying this recipe tonight (it’s actually in the oven now)! My question is what is the purpose of the lemon slices?
