You know how I said in my last post that I find myself eating lots of the same foods, turning to old favorites, and keeping my food under my new diet pretty simple? Well then I started to think to myself…maybe some of these old favorites are simple, but who’s to say y’all wouldn’t enjoy some of these recipes?

Well I took an informal poll on Instagram and Facebook, asking if you folks were interested in the recipe for these roasted green beans. Turns out, lots of you wanted it!

So tonight I am sharing one of my favorite veggie recipes. And by that I mean, this is how my mother always makes roasted green beans, and I love them. So I made my mother’s green beans, and now I am sharing them with you. They’re simple, but sometimes simple is really best!

Any other simple old favorites you’d like to see me post recipes for?

Roasted Onion-Garlic Green Beans:

By Miriam Pascal, OvertimeCook.Com


(approximately) 2 lb green beans, ends trimmed off

1 medium spanish onion, finely diced or minced

1-2 cloves garlic, minced

1-3 Tablespoons olive oil (you can even use less if you’re dieting)

2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat the oven to 450. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, tossing well to evenly distribute everything.

Spread the mixture on the prepared baking sheet in as close to a single layer as possible.

Bake at 450 for 30-40 minutes (depending on how well done you like your green beans). Stir halfway through.

Serve hot, and enjoy!

    thanks for the recipe! i enjoy looking at and dreaming about all your fancy cookies and desserts but this one will be made more often!

    I make these all the time but to cut down on time I just sprinkle Lawry’s Garlic Salt. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea, but it has to be this specific brand. Because of my diet, last week I didn’t use olive oil, I just sprayed the green beans lightly with olive oil spray to cut down on the oil. It was still AMAZING!!

    These look great!
    Two question:
    1. why is there a * next to the onions? :)
    2. would you change the baking time if using frozen green beans?

    RE: “1 medium spanish onion, finely diced or minced*” What specifically were you attempting to point out with the asterisk? I see no footnote for it. Thank you in advance.
