Roasted Green Beans - delicious seasoned green beans roasted in olive oil with sweet caramelized Vidalia onions.
Best Ever Roasted Green Beans
I love roasted vegetables and one of my favourite things to roast is French Green Beans. They are so good when roasted with some seasonings and a little olive oil.
Infact these are so darn good, I can easily eat just a plate of these on their own with a little parmesan grated on top. Delicious.
What are Vidalia Onions?
Vidalia Onions are probably my favourite variety of onion to use in a recipe, they just have so much more flavour compared to basic white onions. They caramelize really well and have a sweet flavour that is just delicious. Once you have cooked with these variety of onions, you won't want to use any other.
They are typically grown in Vidalia, Georgia so may not be found in the UK, but don't worry these can be swapped for any variety of sweet onion instead and the recipe is just as delicious. Just try not to use regular onions, unless that is all you have available. It is worth sourcing a sweet variety of onion if you can for this recipe.
Can I use any green bean?
I like to use whole french beans instead of cut green beans for this recipe. They are just the best for roasting in my opinion.
But any fresh green beans will work fine. I don't recommend frozen though. Fresh is best always.
Can I use spray oil?
While you could use spray oil if you want to save some more calories, trust me when I say the little bit of extra virgin olive oil is worth it. They just roast so much better with the little bit of oil and it really isn't many calories when divided into servings.
and trust me when I say these on their own as your only side will be hugely satisfying. They are just delicious.
Main Course to serve with Green Beans
Wondering what main course to serve these with? Here are some of my suggestions:
- Mustard Salmon
- Crispy Potato Topped Pie
- Seasoned Chicken with Rich Gravy
- Rich Beef and Prune Stew
- Slow Cooker Braised Beef
- Honey and Mustard Chicken Tray Bake
