An effortless vegetable side dish

Roasted vegetables are the best vegetables, there, I said it. I have been a fan of roasting vegetables for years, both because it is undoubtedly the easiest way to prepare them, but also gives the most delicious results. Just a little salt, oil and heat is enough to bring out the natural sweetness of whatever you are roasting, while also creating a perfect texture.

Toss the beans in the oil and season with salt. Roast for 15 minutes, then remove sheet from oven and turn the green beans over with a spatula. Return to the oven and continue to roast another 10 minutes, or until tender and starting to brown.
