simple green beans-hSimple sides are sometimes the best sides.  There is just something so good about letting the vegetable come through without a lot of extra seasoning or technique being used to enhance it and these simple green beans are AMAZING!

For me I find that roasting a veggie with a few simple spices really brings out the best in most veggies and these green beans are a perfect example of this simple cooking technique.  

Growing-up green beans was just about the only veggie I would eat, and the love for this little green spear has only increased as I have moved into adult hood.  I love them cooked low and slow, wrapped in bacon, sautéed, even fried but roasting them is definitely my favorite way to enjoy this perfect little veggie.  

Now when I was a kid my mom used canned green beans a lot, we just didn’t have access to all the wonderful fresh veggies we do now but now fresh is all that I use…even in casseroles such as the infamous green bean casserole (my recipe can be found here).  My family was never a huge green bean casserole family but it always seemed to make an appearance on our Holiday tables, but this year in place of the creamy casserole I think we will stick with these simply roasted green beans…and save the creamy stuff for the gravy and mashed potatoes.
