Roasted Seasoned Greenbeans

I hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and is ready for school to be out and Summer fun to begin. I for one had a great weekend, just getting ready for the movers to come this week, eek! Now begins that part in the moving process when I get a little cray and start obsessing about everything... I'm probably not a very fun person to be around ha. But this is our 4th move in less than 3 years so..... you get it. I've been cleaning everything, including cleaning out my fridge and freezer and trying to cook everything up. I had an abundance of frozen veggies and spent some time cooking them up over the weekend, using recipes I found online, and some I came up with on my own. Using what ingredients I still had left in my pantry, I created this super quick and easy roasted green bean recipe, using bruschetta mix seasoning my hubs brought me from the Netherlands. 

What you need:
  • 1 12oz bag of green beans, fresh or frozen, washed and cut
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Ground black pepper
  • A pinch of sea salt 
  • Bruschetta mix seasoning

What you'll do:
  • In a large mixing bowl, blend green beans, olive oil, salt, pepper and seasoning until all green beans are coated.
  • Using a baking sheet, spread the green beans evenly.
  • If the green beans are fresh, bake at 400 for 30 minutes, then toss and roast until they start browning.
  • If the green beans are frozen, bake at 400 for 30 minutes, then toss and roast for an additional 20 minutes. 
  • Serve warm and enjoy! (Told you it was easy! Oh, and super yummy!)


  1. This looks so tasty. We tried roasted green beans for the first time last week, and the kids loved it. I will have to try your recipe.

  2. I can't wait to try this. I wonder if it would work with fava beans as well.

  3. Excellent! Perfect for summer

  4. What a great way to spice up such a boring vegetable (sorry green bean fans... they are boring!)

  5. These look really yummy! Pinning this for later!

  6. This looks so good, and what an easy way to spice up green beans!

  7. Oh yum! Green beans are one of my little ones favorites. These would be a huge family hit.

  8. You know what, I roast almost anything, and I have NEVER roasted green beans! Off to roast!

  9. This looks so yummy! I have a recipe I love to do during the holidays where I cook string beans in a pan on the stove, but I love the idea of roasting them!

  10. Pinned to try. We've done baked green bean fries before. Do these get crisp at all?

  11. Yummy! I love roasting green beans. Well, actually I love roasting any veggie, ha! It just tastes so much better!

  12. They look so good, I love roasting rather than steaming, so much more flavor!!
    Thanks for being a hostess on #OMHGWW each week Ashleigh!!
    Have a great week!

  13. super yum! Back home in Indonesia, we cook fresh green beans a lot and mix them with so many things, from other veggies to tofu and chicken and beef :) Happy #OMHGWW ..
