Spicy Roasted Green Beans Recipe
Normally I’m all about beautiful food. We eat with our eyes first, right? The first time I made roasted green beans it was hard to let them roast until they looked shriveled and ugly.
But trust me here. They are so much better when they look like that. You’ll find yourself unable to stop eating them.
Seriously, I have eaten an entire bag of frozen green beans myself. Something magical happens when you roast green beans like this. Fortunately, they are a much better snack obsession than potato chips! You could even dip them in something if you like but they’re fabulous on their own.
Fresh Or Frozen Green Beans – Which Is Best?
Honestly, either fresh or frozen green beans work just fine in this spicy roasted green beans recipe. The fresh green beans seem to take a little longer to roast in my experience. Frozen green beans also have the convenience of already being prepared and ready to go, right out of the bag.
Are you a gardener or do you frequently visit farmers’ markets? Then, absolutely use those fresh, home grown green beans! But if you have to buy your green beans at the grocery store don’t feel guilty buying frozen.
Which Fat Is Best for Roasting Green Beans?
I’m a huge fan of Wildly Organic Red Palm Oil. It’s gorgeous, full of antioxidants, and sustainably sourced. But if you don’t have any that’s fine. Widly Organic coconut oil, virgin or refined, work just as well.
If it’s warm when you make these spicy roasted green beans, your red palm or coconut oil will likely be liquid already. If so, you can skip the initial step of melting the oil on the green beans in the oven. Just pour the oil over the beans and mix well. Frozen green beans may cause the oil to solidify a bit but you’re going to be stirring these several times so don’t worry about that.
These roasted green beans make a great snack but also are terrific as a side dish with your choice of protein. Pair with grilled or roasted meats, soup, or salads for a complete and delicious meal. Spicy roasted green beans are keto, low carb, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan, which means just about anyone can enjoy this easy recipe.
