Baked Green Beans

Baked Green Beans

Green beans can be tricky, but they are one of my favorite side dishes, though I rarely eat them. This is an easy side dish that can be thrown together in a no time and tastes fabulous. By using green beans and adding a little onion and seasoning you have a very healthy, very delicious side dish that really hits the spot.

What You'll Need:
Raw green beans (Note: You could use frozen if you wanted, but should cut the cooking time down to 25-30 minutes.)
1 small red onion, chopped
Extra virgin olive oil
Coarse sea salt
Freshly cracked black pepper

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Baked Green Beans: Ready to Bake

Brush the bottom and sides of an 8 X 8 inch dish with olive oil. Add green beans. (Note: I used a 12 ounce package I picked up in the salad isle, but there isn't an exact amount you need to do this.) Top beans with chopped onion, a drizzle of olive oil, some coarse sea salt and some freshly cracker black pepper.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until beans are tender and onions are slightly caramelized.

Baked Green Beans: Baked

Notes: You could add in a few cloves of minces garlic too if you wanted. Any kind of onion will work as well.
