It’s been a while since I’ve featured an “easy entertaining” recipe- which is a shame, because the whole point of them is to prove how quick and easy it is to prepare food for guests! If they are that quick, there are really no excuses for me. But I’ll make up for this with a tasty one. These “baked beans” are such a quick, guilt-free salty snack, and as an added bonus- they’ll be on the table in less than 20 minutes! (I make no promises for how long they last once they are there though….)
Baked Green Beans:
What you need:
- 1pkg haricot vert (or very skinny green beans)
- Salt and Pepper
- olive oil
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
Set the oven to 425. Cut the ends off the green beans in two clean swoops (if you are extra lazy- you can skip this step). Next, line a baking sheet with tinfoil and lightly coat the entire surface with olive oil (you can also use a mister or cooking spray). Arrange the beans side by side (no need to go crazy- just make sure they are fairly well spread out with not too many overlapping). Sprinkle with salt and pepper and the grated Parmesan. Put the sheet in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Times may vary, but take them out when they are just starting to crisp. Sprinkle with extra sea salt while they are still warm and serve.
Makes for a great snack or side dish!
