  • 2 lbs fresh green beans - trimmed
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic - minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • salt + pepper - to season, plus more to taste
  • ½ cup sliced candied almonds
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese - grated


  • Preheat oven. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Set aside.
  • Mix the green beans. Add the trimmed green beans to a large mixing bowl and drizzle with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Add the minced garlic, Italian seasoning, and a pinch of salt and pepper to the bowl. Mix well to combine and evenly coat the green beans.
  • Scatter and cook. Spread the green beans onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and roast for approximately 10-15 minutes, gently shaking the pan once halfway through cooking.
  • Add the almonds and cheese. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and immediately sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese and candied sliced almonds. Gently toss to combine.


  • Any type of nut or seed will taste fantastic with these green beans. If you prefer not to add candied almonds, lightly salted almonds will also work.
  • Be sure to dry your green beans really well before tossing with garlic and olive oil as the extra water will steam your beans rather than roast them.
  • Cooking at a slightly higher oven temperature (in this case 400 degrees F) will allow your beans to crisp up before turning soggy.
  • For extry crispy green beans, pop your baking sheet back in the oven for 2 minutes or so after you've added the cheese and almonds.
  • Try using this recipe with asparagus, sugar snap peas, or even edamame.
