If you’re wondering how to cook green beans, these oven roasted green beans are for you! This is the best green bean recipe I’ve made in a long time and the dipping sauce just adds to the fun!
So, you want to know my usual way to eat a green bean?
This green bean recipe right here. I make it as often as possible. Both of my kids eat it, which is a miracle, and it’s really not too difficult!
This green bean casserole is also a big hit!
But, you guys. I have a new found green bean love. I toss them in Parmesan cheese and then I roast them.
And then I stand over the cookie sheet full of crispy green goodness and I point at each individual bean and say “Mine. Mine. Mine.”
Sorry, kids. This dish is for mama, you can’t have any, don’t even ask.
I mean, they don’t, like, need nutrients or anything, right? Kids are resilient. They’ll be fine with their box of mac and cheese while I hoover in the green beans.
Of course, I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t fatten things up with this seriously creamy dipping sauce. It’s tangy and garlicky and maybe sometimes you’ll find yourself eating it with a spoon. Who can say, really?
This recipe just so happens to be low in carbs and high in fat (when you add the dip), which is perfect for my keto diet. It also happens to be downright amazing, so I eat these even when I’m not doing the low carb thing.
I’ve only tried this recipe using fresh green beans, but I plan to give them a try with a big bag of frozen beans sometime soon. I kind of hate trimming green beans and yet, I seem to manage it every other night because that’s how addicted to these green beans I am. They’re almost like french fries and I’m in love.
