Roasted Green Beans

Servings: 6 servings
Author: Jennifer Locklin


  • 2 pounds fresh green beans stem ends trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Add green beans and toss to coat well.
  • Pour green beans out onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Spread out green beans into an even layer and drizzle with remaining oil mixture.
  • Roast in oven for 15 minutes; remove and toss green beans again. Return to oven for an additional 15 minutes. (Most of the balsamic should be caramelized by now and a glaze will form on the beans.)
