We eat a lot of green beans around here. Everyone in the family loves them. Before I really started experimenting with different ways to cook foods, we would just steam them in the microwave and season them with garlic salt, lemon pepper or some other random spice. But since I started roasting them in the oven, we haven’t had them steamed again! My 16-year-old daughter saw I had green beans in the refrigerator and begged me to make them. How can you say no to a teenager that begs for vegetables?!? Needless to say, I was more than willing to accommodate this request! When she saw they were in the oven I even got a “you’re awesome, Mom”. True story. I should totally make these every day. Forever.
