I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Roasted vegetables are life. If you are one of those people who thinks “blehhhhh” when it comes to vegetables, it’s time to get on the roasting train. I love roasting all kinds of vegetables – broccoli, potatoes, peppers, onions, asparagus, and the list goes on – and you want to know something crazy? It wasn’t until a couple months ago that I roasted green beans for the first time. And since then, I’ve made oven roasted green beans time and time again. It’s a new favorite addition to my meal prep list.
Why Roasted Vegetables Are The Perfect Addition to Your Next Meal Prep
Roasted vegetables, just like these oven roasted green beans are a mainstay in my meal prep planning each week. What I love about roasted vegetables is their versatility. They are delicious dipped in hummus or this garlic yogurt dip, have the power to turn any salad from drab to fab and simply taste good reheated and enjoyed as a side for a meal.

Fresh veggies are great, but have you tried a roasted veggie with olive oil, salt and pepper. Ooh it is a treat! If you are getting sick of your current vegetable routine, switch it up by putting those veggies in the oven. Maybe even give this oven roasted green beans recipe a shot 😉
You Only Need 5 Ingredients for Oven Roasted Green Beans
I’m all about simple recipes and these oven roasted green beans are no exception. You only need 5 ingredients… let me repeat that… JUST 5 INGREDIENTS! Here are those five simple ingredients:
- Green beans – Make sure the beans are washed and the ends are trimmed before roasting them. To which you may be thinking, “Duh, Reed,” but a little reminder never hurts!
- Olive oil – You can really use any sort of cooking oil here. My favorite oils for roasting vegetables are olive oil and avocado oil.
- Coconut aminos – These are a must in this recipe because they add the perfect balance of a little sweetness in the glaze. Coconut aminos are often used in place of soy sauce because they offer delightful flavor to dishes, a hint of sweetness and they are gluten free! If you are still wondering what coconut aminos are, check out this product link – this is the kind I used for this recipe!
- Garlic powder – You are about to use a hefty amount of garlic powder. This is super critical to the dish to get a delightful garlic glaze on your oven roasted green beans.
- Salt – Very little explanation needed here.
How to Make Oven Roasted Green Beans
Follow these simple steps for perfectly roasted green beans!
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
- Wash and trim your green beans then lay them out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. (Parchment paper is your best friend when it comes to roasting veggies, as it makes clean up super simple!)
- In a small container with a lid (I like to use a mason jar) combine the olive oil, coconut aminos, garlic powder and salt, then shake to thoroughly combine.
- Pour the glaze over the green beans and use a spatula or your hands to spread the glaze across all the beans.
- Roast for 25-30 min*, until the bottom of the beans are beginning to brown. *For high altitude cooking. 5-10 minutes less if at sea level.
