Sometimes, even though it's a hot Summer's day, I will be overcome with the desire to roast some vegetables. I throw caution to the wind and turn on the oven, knowing it might add to the temperature in my kitchen (No worries today though, there was a pleasant breeze!). I do this often because the flavor of roasted veggies far surpasses any other method of cooking them, in my humble opinion (stir frying is a close second!). Roasted Spicy Green Beans with Tomatoes was on today's menu.
Roasted Spicy Green Beans with Tomatoes
A couple of days ago I was out and about gathering, as I like to call it. I ended up at our local farmers market, which is like a trip to A theme park for me! Ah, the sights, the sounds, the smells! Truly a happy place! If you are a foodie like me, perhaps you love your local farmers market as much as I do!
They had some wonderful French green beans, AKA haricot vert, which are a bit skinnier and a little shorter that the Blue Lake green beans you usually find. They cook faster as they are thinner. They are also more tender.
Green beans are wonderful on their own, but for this recipe I decided to give them some company on the baking sheet. Roasted tomatoes are super with haricot vert (Love French words). They turn out sweet, and with some spice added, the roasted veggies are extra delicious! I hope you enjoy making Roasted Spicy Green Beans with Tomatoes.

This was really good, and easy to make. May try adding a few shakes of basil next time.
