First, toss the beans with olive oil and lemon juice. To make things pretty, add some lemon slices to the baking sheet (after you squeeze them, of course). Because garlic scorches easily, don’t add it until the very end. Then, roast just a couple more minutes and you’ll have lemony, garlic perfection!

Serve this easy side dish everywhere, from elegant dinner parties to backyard barbecues. These tasty, colorful roasted fresh green beans will add a burst of green goodness to any plate!

I’d love to try these roasted green beans with Parmesan cheese! And since everyone puts bacon with brussels sprouts, we should all probably try roasted green beans with bacon.

Short on fresh lemons? Another healthy option is roasted green beans with balsamic vinegar.

If you want a more filling side dish, you could also combine roasted green beans and potatoes. Especially with Parmesan cheese, it sounds like side dish Heaven!
