The trick to crunchy beans is to roast them until they are just tender-crisp, not overly soggy.

First, toss the beans with olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. To make things pretty, add some lemon slices to the baking sheet (after you squeeze them, of course). Then, roast just a couple more minutes and you’ll have lemony, garlic perfection!
