Side Dish

Easy Roasted Green Beans

Easy Roasted Green Beans with sweet peppers and garlic!
I don’t know about you, but side dishes kind of get the shaft at my house. Not that I don’t love a good side dish, but there just isn’t enough time and energy in the day to prepare a main course, deal with tired, hungry, cranky kids and prepare 2-3 amazing and complicated sides as well. That’s what Thanksgiving is for, right? Usually I focus on the main dish, and if I need extra sides, they tend to be really simple.
Roasted Green Beans - a super easy, family friendly veggie that is ready in 20 minutes!
The great thing about fresh produce is that it doesn’t need a lot of help to be awesome. Here green beans and sweet peppers are combined with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic and lemon zest. That’s it. An awesome, healthy, and EASY side dish that your whole family will love. And its ready in 20 minutes! Enjoy!
Clean eating veggie side dish - easy and delicious!
Pssst! This recipe works equally well whether you are using fresh or frozen green beans!
