Roasted Green Beans

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

Roasting green beans creates caramelized notes that pair well with bright lemon zest. Serve the beans with roasted chicken or seared salmon, or use them in Roasted Green Bean Panzanella.


  • 1 lb. green beans, trimmed
  • 2 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest (optional)

  • Position a rack in the center of the oven and heat to 425°F.
  • On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the green beans with the oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper, and spread in a single layer. Roast until the bottoms begin to brown, about 15 minutes. Toss, rearrange on the baking sheet, and roast until tender and golden brown in places, about 5 minutes more.
  • Toss the beans with the lemon zest, if using, season to taste, and serve.
