Kaitlyn’s Simple and Spicy Roasted Green Beans

I recently hosted Sheva Brochos (wedding after-party with seven blessings) for Gila and Shimshon. I wanted a simple, delicious and green side dish that would stand up well on a buffet. My daughter, Kaitlyn, suggested this simple and spicy roasted green bean recipe.

She suggested using Trader Joe’s fresh Haricot Verts (French Green beans).  They come in a two-pound package with the beans already trimmed.  I used frozen french green beans.  It can be made either way, with fresh or frozen.  French green beans are slimmer and longer than standard green beans, so if you use regular green beans, you may have to adjust the roasting time and roast them for a bit longer.

Kaitlyn used the Dorot-brand frozen cubes of garlic and chili, four each.  I used chili powder and fresh minced garlic, instead.

It was simple. It was green. And, it was delicious.

Here is the recipe:

2 pounds of french green beans, washed
1 onion, finely chopped
4 tablespoons chili
4 cloves of minced garlic or 4 tablespoons granulated garlic
4 tablespoons kosher Salt
dash of Pepper
Olive oil
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Spread green beans on a baking sheet covered with foil or parchment paper. Sprinkle the chopped onion on top of the green beans.

In a small container combine the chili, garlic, salt and pepper and then cover it in olive oil. Combine seasoning with oil and then drizzle or brush over the green bean/onion mixture.

Bake for 20-30 minutes.  Make sure to keep a close eye on the green beans because they can easily burn.
