Roasted Green Beans

Roasted Green BeansI’ve done a lot of roasting of vegetables over the years, but I roasted my very first green beans tonight.  We thoroughly enjoyed them.  I was amazed how sweet they are when roasted!  I’ll put the seasonings I used on them in the recipe below, but you can use any seasonings you like or just salt and pepper with no additional seasoning.  These are suitable for all phases of Atkins, Keto diets, and Primal-Paleo as well.

1 lb. fresh green beans, ends trimmed off, washed

3 T. olive oil

Dash each sea salt, coarse black pepper

Dash Cajun seasoning (I used my Seafood Spice Blend)

Dash onion powder

DIRECTIONS:   Preheat oven to 375º-400º.  My oven cooks a little hot, so I did mine at 375º.Trim and wash beans.  Dry on a clean kitchen towel.  My oven cooks a little hot, so I did mine at 375º.  Drizzle the olive oil over a metal baking pan.  Place green beans directly on the sheet and shake pan back and forth to roll them in the oil to coat them all over.  Sprinkle evenly with each of the indicated spices.  Roll again to get it all onto the beans.  Pop pan into hot oven and roast, shaking them on the pan after around 10 minutes.  Roast an additional 10-15 minutes or until just beginning to brown.  Keep an eye on them the last half of cooking so they don’t burn.  Remove and serve at once.
