Roasted green beans with cranberries and walnuts

roasted green beans with walnuts and dried cranberries

If you’ve never tried roasted green beans, you’re in for a treat. Unlike boiled beans – which are bland and squeaky when you bite into them – roasted green beans are tender, caramelized and full of flavor. Cranberries and walnuts dress them up and make them a perfect side dish for the holidays.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, stem ends trimmed
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced into quarters
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, from one lemon
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, from one lemon
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup walnuts (toasted if desired; see note)
