These Roasted Green Beans are made with fresh green beans, lemon, olive oil, parmesan, and garlic. Oven baked and so tender and delicious! This recipe is an easy and tasty vegetable side dish that even the green-bean-haters will love.
Why this recipe works:
My husband is a pretty good eater when it comes to veggies, but he's no fan of green beans. That is, until I made them using this recipe.
- Super easy to make: When you take fresh green beans, like I do in this recipe, and roast them to perfection with a few simple ingredients, the result is tender, chewy, flavorful green beans. So good. These parmesan green beans only take a few minutes to put together and 20 minutes to roast in the oven.
- Serve any time of year: Every dinner needs a green vegetable on the side. These green beans are fantastic for any kind of weeknight dinner but also make quite the impression during holiday dinners like Thanksgiving or Christmas.
- Amazing flavor: I'll put parmesan and garlic on just about anything, but when you have a green vegetable, a squeeze of fresh lemon will knock your socks off. These tasty green beans not only offer a delicious taste, but fantastic texture.

This is an easy and delicious green beans dish. Not sure how this can feed 6 because me and hubby finish it in one sitting. 😀
Simple and easy and quick and crunchy and yummy too. Best option for a simple and comfort meal. Veggies are always good in this form.
I am really excited now because I think I've found my new favorite way of making green beans - they look absolutely amazing! 🙂
We love roasted green beans but the addition of the parmesan was amazing!
Green beans are one of my favorite vegetables! I am so excited to add this to my rotation menu for Thanksgiving!
I'm looking forward to trying these, thinking ahead to Thanksgiving! Have you tried them with frozen (thawed) green beans?
I don't like to roast frozen thawed vegetables (green beans, broccoli, etc) because I find they are too wet. Fresh green beans are usually nice and dry so they roast and crisp up nicely. If you try it, will you let me know? -Krissy
