I'm not THAT bad, but I do enjoy a cooked veggie over a raw one...The problem with that though is they can go from to raw to mushy in a flash. So I present my new favorite way of preparing vegetables...
Anything can be roasted. It's easy, its relatively fast and they stay crispy and crunchy while still being cooked just enough.
After rinsing and draining your fresh green beans, and cutting up some garlic, it really takes no effort at all.
fresh, cleaned and trimmed green beans
1 garlic clove, chopped
grated parmesano reggiano
oven safe tray or cookie sheet
Preheat oven to 400
Spread out your green beans on your baking dish so that they are not over lapping but still close together.
Toss your garlic around and generously pour olive oil over your green beans and garlic, a good 1/4 cup at least.
Sprinkle sea salt and cheese to your liking. I liked a gentle sprinkle of each but feel free to be more generous.
Pop in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until green beans have slightly browned tips and cheese has bubbled.
Serve and Enjoy :)
