Roasted Green Beans with Almonds

Lightly toasted almond slices add a delightful, tasty crunch to these simple roasted green beans.

This is a delicious addition to a holiday feast - or any meal!


2 tablespoons sliced almonds
12 ounces green beans, ends trimmed
1 scant tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Meanwhile, toast the almonds in a dry skillet over low to medium-low heat for few minutes until lightly golden. Remove from heat and set aside.

In a bowl, toss the beans with the olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Arrange the coated beans in a single layer in a baking dish, roasting pan, or cookie sheet.

Roast the beans in the oven for 10-25 minutes, turning them once or twice, until the beans are cooked to the desired tenderness.

Transfer the beans to serving plate(s) and sprinkle the toasted almonds over the beans.

-- 3-4 servings


  1. Simple, yet delicious. The way it should be.

    Thanks for sharing it with Midnight Maniac Meatless Mondays.
