So who out there doesn’t love some good fresh from the garden green beans? I’m sure most of us can agree on this. I hope you’ll try these Garlic and Red Onion Roasted Green Beans. I think they take green beans to the next level of Yum!I like to just snap the ends off and leave them whole when I roast them. Now I can’t say that I pulled these from my own garden, but they were really fresh and also Organic. Since I don’t really have the space for a garden with everything in it I would like, I sometimes have to rely on local suppliers to find what I need.
How many of you are lucky enough to have your own garden? Ultimately that would be the way to go. I would love to be able to grow all my own food. I know it’s a lot of work, but I enjoy being outside so I could really see myself getting into this. Oh well, I’ll just add that to my list of things I hope to accomplish one day.If you have some green beans you were thinking of cooking in the near future this is really a simple way to prepare them. The red onion and garlic mixed with the beans while roasting not only smell delicious while you’re cooking them, but the flavors are awesome as well. You could also do these on the grill and they would be good.
I know it’s getting close to the official grilling season, although some of you may have already started.
And a Portabella Mushroom Burger would also be great on the grill, along with these Garlic and Red Onion Roasted Green Beans.Green beans are one of those vegetables that go great with a lot of different foods. So why not include these tonight on your dinner table?
