Awesome, flavorful recipe. Since I needed to use other veggies I had on hand, I also added slices of mini peppers (yellow, red & orange), sliced shallots and sliced carrots. It was wonderful & colorful. Now it's a part of regular veggie side dish selection.

Meh... These weren't bad, but I've had better roasted green beans. Time and temp seem a bit off. Not generally a fan of Cooks Illustrated, but many years back they had a roasted green beans article with several roasted green beans recipes. Those were far better.

I'm trying to eat a minimum 80% plant-based meals.....So always looking for ways to incorporate delicious, healthy vegtable recipes into my menus. Made these yesterday & they are definitely my new favourite green bean recipe. Awesome flavor, easy to prepare....Mmmm. I like them cold or hot out of the oven. Took some to work for my lunch & let my coworkers try them...Not one person didn't want the recipe. Now to try them on my Son & Grandkids....Don't deprive your family of a delicious Green Bean side dish or snack. I did add a sprinkle of Lemon Pepper once on the pan.

Really delicious and so easy! Gobbled up by my non-green bean eating husband and our 3 year-old. A total winner!

Always a hit and too easy to make! This recipe has become a Thanksgiving staple and can be made at the last minute as the turkey is being carved. I add a teaspoon or 2 of roasted garlic puree, cutting the oil down, tossing and then roasting per the recipe. The roasted garlic really jazzes up the string beans.

A great twist on green beans. Watch the cooking time though; they were done much more quickly.
