Garlic & Orange Roasted Green Beans

I’m pretty good at a handful of things. And throwing a bunch of green beans seeds into the dirt and mostly remembering to water them when Mother Nature won’t is near the top.

This is the barely-a-recipe recipe that we’ve been using to put a dent in the 2-pounds-a-week green beans that have been coming out of the garden this spring.

Garlic & Orange Roasted Green Beans

It’s the best kind of barely-a-recipe recipe, too. Drizzle, shake bake, eat. There’s nothing complicated or fancy or lengthy about it.

So it’s a whole lot like this post, only with more dirty dishes. And slightly less shaking.

Garlic & Orange Roasted Green Beans

Make the most of your green bean crop by roasting them with citrus and garlic.


  • ~ 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Olive oil
  • Juice of 1 small orange
  • Soy sauce (I substitute coconut aminos)
  • Salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 400.
  2. Place the green beans on a baking sheet (line it with foil first if you didn't forget that you were out so you didn't buy any this week).
  3. Drizzle with olive oil, add the minced garlic and a pinch of salt and then shake to coat and mix.
  4. Drizzle the orange juice and a few dashes of soy sauce (or coconut aminos) over top.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, shake the pan or toss with tongs, and then bake for another 5-10, until the beans begin to caramelize.
  6. Remove from oven and at least TRY not to eat them ALL straight from the pan.


Yields: 4-6 servings

we love roasted green beans- love this flavor idea! usually we just throw on lemon pepper or the 21 seasoning salute from TJ’s but this way sounds amazing!

Roasting green beans is my favorite way to cook them. Game-changing.

I’m not much of a green bean fan but I’d gladly devour this any day of the week!

I have always steam or quick boiled mine. Roasting sounds much better! Now if I could keep the bunnies from eating my green bean plants (there is a baby bunny that cab fit through the fence that thinks I grow beans just for her).

I’ve roasted many a veggie in my day, but never a green bean. I’ll have to try this when green beans hit our farm market this summer.
