"A great alternative to fast-food French fries. My family and friends love these as a snack or hors d'oeuvre. No matter how many I make, it's never enough!" — samanathon

fresh green beans, trimmed
olive oil, or as needed
freshly ground black pepper
I loved these green beans, my only complaint is that I didn't make enough of them! I can easily see them being a healthy replacement for french fries!
For us, this was just okay.The olive oil kind of over-powered the green beans. Could have been that I added too much but I just coated them. Will try again sometime and will revise my review if necessary. Thanks for posting the recipe
I thought these tasted good. I had about 1/2 - 3/4 of a lb of French haricot green beans that I had thrown in the freezer. I defrosted them and followed the recipe. I kept the olive oil the same but reduced the seasonings as I didn't have enough green beans for the full recipe. I lined a baking sheet with foil and spread out the green beans and baked them 17 minutes. They were looking a little dry to me to bake them further. They didn't have tons of flavor, on their own, so I added about a tsp of butter and low sodium soy sauce to give them a boost. I served them more as a side dish. I would make them again. It's hard to get green beans the right consistency. This high temperature method seems to be the trick.
I used maybe a pound of fresh green beans just to try this recipe and I LOVED them! I have been roasting a lot of veggies lately and have never thought about the green bean.....mine looked exactely like the photo, a little crispy but tender on the inside. They were very flavorful with very few ingredients. I did use sea salt instead of kosher. Will make again. Thanks!
I use the same recipe for asparagus as well but it's so much better with green beans!
Simple and easy recipe. I find I need to cook longer than the 20-25 minutes suggested. Forty five minutes seems to work better. Sometimes I also add onions and carrots. It is a nice combo for some variety.
