  • 1 lb. fresh green beans washed, trimmed and patted dry
  • 3 large cloves garlic finely minced
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • To Serve:
  • 1 tbsp high-quality extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp freshly grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat™ baking mat. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, toss the green beans, garlic, and olive oil together until coated. Spread the seasoned green beans on prepared baking sheet into a single layer without crowding. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Place the baking sheet in the pre-heated oven for 15-20 minutes or just until the beans are crisp tender, turning once halfway through.
  • Remove from oven and transfer beans to a serving platter or bowl. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese right before serving. Enjoy! 


Tip: The green beans will become mushy if roasted too long. Test for doneness after 10 minutes and adjust final cook time accordingly.
