Crispy Roasted Green Beans

  • Author: Leannda

  • Yield: Serves 4

These easy crispy roasted green beans are crisp on the ends and soft in the middle. Perfect for low-key weeknights or a simple side for a feast.


  • 12-oz bag fresh (snipped) green beans
  • About 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 375ºF.
  2. Lay out the green beans and drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle the salt and pepper as evenly as possible. 
  4. Toss, lightly to coat, and arrange in a single layer.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes.


  • You can double this recipe, but the more green beans you use, the less crisp the result (see notes post above: roast, don’t steam).
  • Make ahead tip: Sometimes in the morning of busy cooking days I’ll go ahead and put all the ingredients in a bag, shake them up and store them in the fridge so I just have to preheat and throw them on the sheet. I wouldn’t do this any earlier though to avoid soggy beans.
