Roasted Green Beans with Tomatoes
Roasted vegetables are more flavorful that most other methods of cooking them.
Which Green Beans are Good for Roasting?
- When it comes to roasted green beans, you have a few options to choose from. Here are three popular types of green beans that work well for roasting:
- French Green Beans (Haricots Verts): These thin and tender green beans are a popular choice for roasting. They have a delicate flavor and cook relatively quickly. French green beans are slightly more expensive than regular green beans but are worth it if you prefer a more refined taste and texture.
- Regular Green Beans: Also known as snap beans or string beans, regular green beans are widely available and are a great choice for roasting. They have a slightly thicker texture and a classic green bean flavor. Regular green beans are often found in supermarkets and are more budget-friendly than French green beans.
- Romano Beans: Romano beans are wider and flatter than regular green beans. They have a meatier texture and a slightly nutty flavor. Romano beans work well for roasting and can add a unique twist to your dish. Look for them in specialty stores or farmer's markets.
All of these green bean varieties can be roasted using this recipe. Remember to adjust the cooking time slightly based on the thickness of the beans you choose. Keep an eye on them as they roast to ensure they reach the desired tenderness and don't become overly charred.
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. They turn out sweet, and with some spice added, the roasted veggies are extra delicious!
Best Tomatoes for Roasting
- Roasting small tomatoes along with green beans adds a burst of sweetness and juiciness to the dish.
- Use small tomatoes (cherry tomatoes, grape tomatoes, or any other small variety will do).
- The tomatoes are done when soft and slightly blistered.
You can store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days.
This roasted green beans and tomatoes recipe is a delightful accompaniment to various main dishes or can even be enjoyed as a light vegetarian meal.
Adjust the seasoning and cooking time according to your preference and taste. Enjoy the vibrant flavors of this roasted vegetable medley!
