I was lucky enough to see yellow string beans at the farm this week and just knew I had to try them! Sure green beans are everywhere, but I had never cooked with YELLOW beans before! I pretty much always cook my string beans in a skillet, but I wanted to try something new this week. Sometimes the skillet takes too much time, or the rest of the meal is taking up the entire stove top. I wanted to see if roasting would be a nice alternative. You know what? It worked! This simple recipe compliments any Mexican meal and is a great way to add an unexpected veggie to the mix!
1 pound string beans, trimmed
5 larger garlic cloves, finely chopped
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ground coriander seed
salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Place the beans in a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat and spread into a single layer.
- Evenly sprinkle garlic, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper over the beans.
- Bake until lightly browned and shriveled, about 20-25 minutes, turning once while cooking.
