Roasted Green Beans


  • 4

Submitted by Paula Choat


  • 1 lb fresh green beans
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 green onions, trimmed and chopped (optional)


Heat oven to 425°. Trim beans and break them into shorter lengths, if desired. Spread them on a wide, shallow baking pan. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat. Peel garlic and toss with beans. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring twice during cooking and removing any garlic that’s turning deep brown. Beans should shrivel and be tender but chewy. As beans cook, combine jalapeño, water, soy sauce, and sugar, then stir to blend. Remove beans from oven and toss with soy sauce mixture. Serve hot, warm, or cold, sprinkled with green onions. Serves 4.
