In the Kitchen with Jason: Oven Roasted Green Beans

This is an amazing side dish. Easy, quick, and tasty. As the Cooking Light Complete Cookbook states, you will use this as a go-to side.

  • 1 lb green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tsp EVOO
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
  • Combine green beans with EVOO and pepper.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • Arrange beans on the cookie sheet in a single layer.
  • Bake the beans for 10 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
  • Once done cooking, toss with lemon juice and serve.
If you didn't believe me when I said easy, you have to admit I was right. The hardest part of this recipe is trimming the green beans (and one pound can be done in less than five minutes).

Please enjoy!
