Parmesan Roasted Green Beans are a delicious way to enjoy fresh green beans! Perfect for holidays, dinners, or a healthy snack….and best of all, they’re made with just 5 ingredients!
So does it feel like spring where you live, too? We are having a MAJOR warm-up….and we couldn’t be loving it more. We spent the weekend in sandals, with the windows wide open, and I’m pretty sure the girls played outside more than they have in the last 3 months combined. And I have to say. IT WAS AMAZING.
It made me realize how much I’ve missed fresh air. And warmth. And sunshine. And how much I love being able to open up the doors and send the kids outside…and have a few moments of peace and quiet! And most of all? It made me super excited for spring. Which actually isn’t too far away.
One of my favorite parts of spring is the fact that you can suddenly get GOOD fresh produce again. Seriously – winter is long. And even though the produce is there….it’s just not the same! I’m ready for all the fruits and veggies I’ve been missing. And fresh green beans are high on the list.
Parmesan Roasted Green Beans – A perfect side dish
My family loves green beans raw or cooked or any way in between….but our FAVORITE way to eat them is roasted. There’s something about the combination of olive oil and salt that leads to the perfect flavor and texture, not only for green beans, but for so many vegetables. And when you mix in a little parmesan cheese and some panko bread crumbs to make Parmesan Roasted Green Beans? The result is TO DIE FOR. These Parmesan Roasted Green Beans are the BEST. Packed with flavor and crunch and all kinds of deliciousness. So good, in fact, that I plan to make them for Easter. Because I can guarantee that the rest of my family would love these Parmesan Roasted Green Beans as much as I do! Of course, I may need to make a triple batch so we don’t run out….but when spring is here? And green beans are in season? There’s really nothing better.
