Roasted green beans are a great way to add veggies to your diet. Roasting them with some simple seasonings results in nicely charred, full flavored beans that make a great side or even just a mid-afternoon snack. Drizzle with a bit of balsamic, a strong cheese like feta or Parmesan or your favorite herbs for a final flourish. You can do this with broccoli, cauliflower or Brussels sprouts, but green beans are my personal favorite.

 

Roasted Green Beans
2 to 3 servings

1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 to 2 Tbsp. honey
1 cinnamon stick
1 lb. green beans, washed and trimmed
3 Tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. garlic powder
Sprinkle sea salt
Sprinkle freshly ground black pepper
Handful chopped basil, for garnish

• Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
• In a small saucepan over low heat, gently reduce the balsamic vinegar, honey and cinnamon stick until the mixture is thick and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and set aside.
• Toss the green beans in a bowl with the oil until evenly coated.
• On a wide baking sheet, spread the green beans in a single layer, then evenly sprinkle them with the garlic powder, salt and pepper.
• Roast 20 minutes, until nicely charred and crisp.
• Remove to a serving plate, drizzle with 1 tablespoon balsamic reduction, garnish with basil and serve immediately.
