Another goodie from Highland Orchards – beautiful green beans.
This is another recipe that was a hit with 6 year-old Cam – roasted green beans with a hint of lemon and topped with some Parmigiano reggiano. I think he is finally rediscovering his palate.
The beans were a very nice side dish with my cornmeal-crusted tilapia and rice.
Lemon Roasted Green Beans
2 lbs. Green Beans, cleaned and trimmed (form Highland Orchards)
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Lemon, juiced
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 Tablespoons Freshly Grated Parmesan Cheese
Preheat the oven to 425º.
Toss the green beans with the olive oil, lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper. Place them evenly on a large baking sheet.
Roast the green beans for 15-20 minutes, or until lightly golden and crisp-tender.
Transfer the green beans to a serving platter and top with fresh parmesan cheese, if desired.
