The first time I prepared green beans this way, my husband said they tasted almost like french fries. Even if they don't taste like french fries, they are delicious and a nice change of pace.
Oven Roasted Green Beans
1 lb. green beans, trimmed and cleaned
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Sea salt and black pepper
Preheat oven to 450ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil, and adjust oven rack to middle position. Spread beans evenly on baking sheet. Drizzle with oil, and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle with salt and toss to coat. Distribute into one even layer. Roast 10 minutes. Stir. Roast another 10-12 minutes until beans are dark golden brown in spots and have started to shrivel. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
