Oven Roasted Green Beans

My daughter loves to roast vege's in the oven. She's even fixed them for me, but until the other day I hadn't done it myself. Big mistake! I decided to roast some green beans in the oven. Now, usually I just stick them in the pressure cooker. I always thought that was easiest, but I WAS WRONG! I decided to roast them in the oven, and they were the best green beans I'd ever had! I had a big pile of them, then I went and got some more, and while I was cleaning up the kitchen I snacked on them some more and I though, hey these taste better than french fries! Then I was thinking it would be fun to go to McDonald's and buy some french fries and use the little box to put my bean fries in, just for fun. But, then I remembered that they had torn down our McDonald's recently and built a brand new one. Everyone has been talking about how nice it is and I still haven't been there. In fact no one in my family has! I keep telling my kids that I think it would be fun to be able to say we're the only ones in town that have never eaten there! I don't think McDonald's has the best food choices, so I choose not to eat there. Now, to get off my high horse and back to the beans. We went to Arby's for dinner and brought it home, and I let my sweet hubby and my kids eat the french fries while I proceded to fill the french fry box with my lovely green beans. They were so good! Let me tempt you with some pictures!

Oven Roasted Green Beans
green beans, I used 2/3 of a bag from Costco
olive oil
sea salt
fresh ground pepper
Put the green beans on a big cookie sheet. Sprinkle with olive oil, sea salt and pepper. With your hands, stir them up, then lay them all out nice and even. Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Taste them to tell if they need more time.

I frequently serve oven roasted veggies to my guests and they always comment on how delicious they are. Then they want to know exactly how I made them. :)

Try broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, brussel sprouts, carrots, squash, etc.
