Roasted Garlicky Romano

This recipe works equally well with any type of green bean. Roasting beans whole will intensify their flavor and produces slightly charred beans that are addictive. They’ll become your new favorite snack. I love these!!!



  • romano beans, stem-ends trimmed
  • olive oil
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, smashed
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, broken in half
  • salt and fresh ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450°F

On a large rimmed baking sheet, toss the whole beans with plenty of oil, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper. Spread the beans into a single layer.

Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, or until the beans are tender and browned. Serve warm or at room temperature.
