I love roasting vegetables but never found a green bean recipe that I loved…….until this one. It must be the combination of the lemon and capers! It’s my new favorite!!


1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

2 tablespoons capers

¼ teaspoon sea salt

¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat an oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Scatter the green beans on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Top with oil, lemon zest and juice, garlic, capers, salt, and pepper. Use your hands, or kitchen tongs, to massage the ingredients together and coat the beans with oil.

Roast the green beans in oven for 10-15 minutes, shaking the pan once halfway through, until the beans are tender and lightly browned.
