I enjoy Thanksgiving for several reasons. I appreciate a day that is set aside to remember, reflect and give thanks for all the blessings we have, to remember those less fortunate, to give thanks by sharing in our blessings and spending time with family.
Thanksgiving is now only a few days away. Is your menu planned? Have you done your shopping? Do you have things prepped and ready?
Green beans are a traditional accompaniment to holiday dinners. They come dressed in sauces and spice, are blanched and baked and are so very delicious!
These green beans were inspired by roasted garlic and Parmesan potatoes by husband made a while back (recipe is in the comments section of my Instagram page: AmandasPlate).
Here is my recipe:
Prep: 10 minutes Bake: 10 minutes Servings: 6
1 pound green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup sliced garlic cloves
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Toss green beans in olive oil and place on baking sheet. Roast for 7 minutes. Remove from oven.
2. Using the same bowl you tossed green beans in the oil, combine green beans with garlic, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese. Place back on baking sheet and roast for another 3-4 minutes.
3. Remove from heat. Place on serving platter and add more freshly shaved Parmesan (optional but who doesn’t love extra cheese).
4. Enjoy 🙂
*The sun set faster than I was able to cook, so I apologize for the poorly lit photos of the finished dish. Trust me they are delicious 😀
