Recipe ingredients:

Raw green beans tossed with garlic and lemon slices on a baking sheet.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, toss together beans, olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and salt to taste. I like at least 1/2 teaspoon salt, sometime I do a full teaspoon.
  2. Bake until browned in some places but still crisp, about 20 to 25 minutes. Serve immediately.

Recipe tips:

  • This recipe works perfectly for edamame, sugar snap peas, haricots verts, or Romano beans.
  • To prepare your beans, snap off the stem ends by hand, or use kitchen scissors to snip off the stem ends. If your beans have them, remove any tough strings that run along the length of the beans. There’s no need to trim off the tails.

Recipe variations and substitutions:

  • Cheese: add shavings of Parmesan or Pecorino cheese to your sheet pan for the final few minutes of roasting.
  • Bacon: roast beans and top with crumbled, cooked bacon and red pepper flakes.
  • Nuts: toss a handful of roasted slivered almonds onto the platter once the beans are served.
  • Mushrooms: include some shiitake mushrooms or smaller button mushrooms in the sheet pan; mushrooms and green beans are incredible (and so healthy) together.
  • Cherry tomatoes: halved or quartered cherry toms get sweet when you oven roast them. Add a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and stand back!
  • Carrots: get the carrots started before you add the beans—see my recipe for Roasted Carrots for the details.

  1. Linda

    Description at the top implies 10 minute’s roasting time, total time is given as 13 minutes, yet detailed instructions say cook 15-25 min. At 400 degrees, is it closer to 10 min or 25 min?

    1. Hi Linda, I made the green beans over the weekend. I really think the beans are perfect after 20 minutes in the oven. My cooking assistant thought she might leave them in for another 5 minutes, but we both gobbled them up. It was like eating French fries, they are so good. I had forgotten how tasty they are! Anyway, I fixed up the post. I hope this is helpful. thank you for your question and sorry for the confusing recipe. -Meggan

    2. Hi Linda, I’m so sorry about that. At some point I went back and adjusted the recipe to be “15 to 25 minutes” but I failed to update the cook time. I will go fix that now. I am going to make them again this weekend and see how long it takes! I’m guessing it’s 15 minutes in the oven. Thanks! -Meggan

      Hooray Diane, thank you so much! Sometimes you need space in your oven, sometimes you need fewer pots on the stove. Glad this one worked out for you. :)
