Garlic Roasted Green Beans

Remember back to childhood for a moment, when your mom served those soggy green beans from a can at dinner. Did you hate vegetables then? Well, I’m here to tell you: these. are. not. those!

These garlic roasted green beans are snappy with just the right amount of salt to keep them heart healthy. Garlic is known for its anti-clotting properties, so it can be good for people who have had blood clots or atherosclerosis (be sure to advise your doc if you eat a lot of garlic and are on blood thinners!). Roasting gives them just the right amount of sweetness, too. Take green beans up a notch!

Use fresh or frozen beans here. Even the spices are customizable. Try these with thyme and lemon, or with ginger and sesame seeds drizzled with soy sauce at the end for a little Asian flair. These green beans roast up quick for a healthy weeknight side dish!
