Skinny Garlic Roasted Green Beans

My husband and I make a conscious effort to eat more green vegetables than starchy vegetables. Garlic Roasted Green Beans are one of our favorite ways to cook green beans to give them just a little extra punch of flavor.  I frequently make a large helping of these green beans for dinner then divide them up for lunches as well; we find that they reheat really well! So whether you are looking for a side dish for party or searching for a great recipe to add more ‘greens’ into your diet, this is the recipe for you!  

Garlic Roasted Green Beans


  • 2 cups of Fresh Green Beans*
  • 2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 TBSP Diced Garlic
  • 1 tsp Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Tony Cachero’s Seasoning (or any other favorite seasoning blend)

*You can use canned green beans, however they don’t taste nearly as fresh nor are do they contain all the vitamins that fresh green beans hold.


1. First place the green beans into a large saute pan. Sprinkle the olive oil over them and toss well. Allow to cook uncovered for a few minutes.

2. Add in the garlic, salt, and seasoning. Cover and allow to saute; be sure to stir/toss them every few minutes to prevent them from overcooking or burning the garlic. *

*When cooking these, I use a lid that is too small for my pan. This allows them to steam but the loose lid does not create a tight seal preventing them from overcooking. I’m not sure if this is a ‘proper cooking technique’ but I do it often! :)

3. Continue cooking until the beans are soft and cooked through, and also the garlic is lightly roasted.
