Roasted Garlic Green Beans

Roasted Garlic Green Beans -


There’s not much more I love more than garlic. Well besides wine, wine truly does make everything better. And bacon, boy do I love bacon. But cooking with garlic does make this world a better place, and I love cooking with garlic. I put it in just about everything.

So when I received a bundle of these awesome purple beans in my Week Ten CSA Share I knew I wanted to roast these bad boys with a little garlic. You know magic is pretty cool too. And when you cook these pretty little purple beans, they magically turn green! How fun is that? If you want to impress your children with some “magic” buy some delicious purple beans, cook them and amaze your kids as they come out of the oven green. I promise you will be the coolest.

This recipe is super easy and oh so tasty. Even if you don’t have purple beans, green beans will still be equally delicious. In addition to being an excellent source of Vitamin K, green beans also contain many other valuable vitamins and minerals, making these a great option to add to your diet.
