  • 2 pounds green beans trimmed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon (see notes)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  • Adjust an oven rack to the middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.
  • In a large bowl, add green beans, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and salt to taste and pepper to taste (I like at least 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; sometimes I do a little more).
  • Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Roast until lightly browned in some places but still crispy, about 20 to 25 minutes.



  1. The zest of one lemon (about 1 teaspoon) can be added with the lemon juice. Just zest the lemon before you cut it to squeeze it.
