Tips For Your Roasted Green Beans

Roasting green beans is a great way to add more healthy vegetables to your diet. Here are a few tips:

  • Fresh green beans. If possible, aim to use fresh green beans that are vibrant and firm. Opt for using frozen green beans that you’ll need to thaw over old green beans.
