Holy schmoley these were good! We had these with hamburgers and watermelon tonight…a classic summertime dinner.
1 lb. green beans, stem ends trimmed
1 pint cherry tomatoes
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for drizzling
Salt and Pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Put an empty rimmed baking sheet on an upper rack. (Not too high though.)
Coat the beans and tomatoes with the olive oil and season them with salt and pepper.
When the oven is ready, pour the beans and tomatoes on the hot baking sheet and roast for about 20 minutes, until tender and caramelized.
What did the family think? Vegetables were not meant to taste this good. Wow! How could something this easy taste so good? How? Hubby and I could not get enough of these. Our oldest said the green beans tasted like french fries and proceeded to eat them with his hands as if they were french fries. Youngest said he couldn’t eat them because he has two loose teeth and the green beans would hurt his teeth. Whatever.
