The BEST Roasted Green Beans with Garlic
In the summertime, I am all about healthy vegetable side dishes. This is a great one for any night — a typical weeknight, or a special occasion. You can rest assured there will be no veggies left on the table after dinner.
Why You’ll LOVE this Easy Baked Garlic Green Bean Recipe:
- Garlic. Cheese. More Cheese. Come on now!
- This dish is put together in about 5 minutes, then bakes for 12 minutes. Faster if you buy your garlic peeled (best trick to eating more garlic!).
- The quick roasting time means the greens beans come out crisp and fresh tasting, while the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- It’s the perfect side dish for grilled pork chops, baked salmon, and would be super dreamy paired with this Baked Cod in Roasted Red Pepper Sauce.
- It’s an irresistible side dish that’s perfect for gluten free, vegetarian, low carb, and keto diets.
I bake this green beans with garlic dish in my Sharp SuperSteam+ Built-in Wall Oven. While regular steam only reaches 212°F, the Sharp SuperSteam+ Oven can create superheated steam up to 485°F. I adore this oven for it’s many uses, and for how moist and fresh food tastes coming out of it!
Cooking with steam this hot can roast meats and caramelize sugars quickly, meaning that your food can be brown and crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. With the Sharp SuperSteam+ Oven, you can grill without smoke, roast without drying, and get the roasty-toasty, tasty results you desire. I have never had an appliance quite like this one.
It has TONS of settings including Steam Cook , Steam Refresh, Steam Bake Bread, Steam Keep Warm, Steam Water Bath, Convection Bake, SuperSteam+ Grill, and SuperSteam+ Roast. These modes help to make the perfect crust on home-baked loaves of bread, to steam vegetables and meats, and also to use convection for baking simple dishes like this.
If you LOVE to cook like I do, and want a luxury experience in your kitchen, I highly recommend this oven. It’s a perfect 2nd oven if you often host holiday gatherings like I do!
How to Make Garlic Green Beans
Step 1: Add the green beans to a baking dish. I don’t think they need to be in a single layer, but make sure to use a dish large enough that they will cook evenly.
Step 2: In a small bowl, combine olive oil, parmesan cheese, minced garlic, salt and pepper.
Step 3: Add the parmesan and oil mixture to the dish with the green beans, and mix to coat the green beans. I usually just use my hands for this so I can really mix up the beans and get them evenly coated!
Step 4: Bake the green beans for 8 minutes. This allows the garlic to toast and the vegetables to begin to soften.
Step 5: Add a layer of mozzarella cheese to the top of the green beans.
Step 6: Return the baking dish to the oven for another 5-7 minutes, until the cheese is melted and begins to brown.
Tips for the Perfect Baked Green Beans
- The cooking times I recommend will result in a crisp, slightly undercooked (and fresh tasting!) green bean dish. If you like your veggies on the softer side, add 3-5 minutes to the first bake time.
- Switch it up! Other healthy veggies work well in this flavor-packed dish. Try asparagus, broccoli, or cauliflower, prepared in the same way!
- Make it your own by adding your favorite cheese in place of the mozzarella! Sharp white cheddar, gruyere swiss cheese, or even a havarti cheese would all melt well and be great with the garlic and green bean combo!
