These easy oven roasted green beans flavored with cranberries and toasted pecans are simple enough for every day, but yummy enough for your holiday guests. Green beans are a versatile vegetable that lends itself well to a bit of nutty sweetness, and don't the bright green and red colors look so pretty on the plate?
Oven roasted green beans have a crunchier texture than their boiled or simmered bretheren. Some people don't like the soft texture of cooked green beans and prefer them to have more of a bite left to them. Roasting green beans in the oven is a perfect solution, and this method opens up more opportunities for flavoring and seasoning as well.
I've posted this recipe using a smaller portion, but it is easily doubled (or tripled!) if you are making these to feed your holiday crowd. You can roast multiple pans at the same time if you need, just rotate your pans if your oven tends to have hot/cold spots (like mine... grr..) Enjoy!Print
