Green beans without the fuss? These PERFECT roasted green beans are an effortless side the whole family will love. Say goodbye to babysitting beans on the stovetop! 

Just 3 ingredients, 1 pan, and 20 minutes required for these savory, caramelized, perfectly salted beans that basically cook themselves. Let the kitchen multi-tasking begin!

How to Make Roasted Green Beans

It doesn’t get much easier than roasted veggies! Here’s what we do:

Wash, dry, and trim the green beansToss with oil and saltThen add to a parchment-lined baking sheet (for easy clean up) and bake!

After baking for about 15 minutes in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 Celsius), they become perfectly fork tender and lightly browned on the edges — a.k.a. green bean perfection!

You can keep the green beans simple (we couldn’t stop eating them straight from the pan as is), or make them a little fancy by garnishing with lemon zest and slivered almonds or sesame seeds.

We hope you LOVE these PERFECT roasted green beans! They’re:

Slightly caramelized
Buttery (without butter!)
& SO quick & easy!

Enjoy as a simple side with almost any meal, including our Creamy Vegan Mushroom Stroganoff, Miso Pumpkin Risotto with Crispy Sage, or Cheesy Vegan Pizza Beans (30 Minutes!).
