I’m probably about two months late for posting this, but my beans just finally started giving me anything to pick. When my family got together for Labor Day, I figured I’d take a bunch of green beans.
Only thing~I don’t care for them raw the way the boys do. I’m tired of just plan boiled beans, so I decided to get creative. I made roasted green beans.
I picked, snapped and washed about six cups of beans. Honestly, how can you really measure something that doesn’t fit properly into the cup?
In a small bowl I put 2 Tablespoons of olive oil.
Then I added 1 teaspoon of chives, 1 teaspoon of dill and 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt.
That was my original plan, but I decided I wanted a bit more oomph with it, so I added a 1 oz. package of ranch dressing mix.
I poured the oil and herb mixture over the beans.
Then I tossed the beans in the oil mixture and made sure they all got coated.
Then I put them on a cookie and placed them in a 450*F oven.
After about five minutes, I gave them a stir and put them back in for another seven or eight minutes. When they came out, they didn’t taste raw, but they were still crisp.
Now they also had a bit of zing to them!
They were very successful at the picnic.
