I love this pretty side dish and fresh green beans are one of my favorites. It’s so colorful, fresh and vibrant, like the summer garden. Green beans and cherry tomatoes are simply seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil for a quick side dish that packs a flavorful punch and goes well with…well, pretty much almost anything!
Get the kids, husband, or some friends involved with snapping the ends off the green beans. Many hands make light the work, but really it’s just a fun group activity. And in my experience, I’ve found that when my kids have helped prepare the food they are much more likely to try it. Even if it’s something they think they might not like. Like vegetables.
- Prepare your vegetables. You’ll need about a pound of washed and snapped beans and 1/2 a pound of halved cherry tomatoes.
- Drizzle the veggies with olive oil. then toss to coat with a clove of minced garlic. (Or more! You let your heart decide how much garlic you need!)
- Spread the veggies on a sheet pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
- Roast at 425 degrees for around 20-25 minutes or until the edges of the beans have started to caramelize a bit and the the tomatoes skins have become loose. Enjoy!
