This is such a quick and easy way to prepare green beans. I love roasting vegetables because they taste so much better to me than steamed or sautéed. I simply seasoned these green beans with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil then roasted them in the oven. They paired perfectly with my pork roast and mashed potatoes and they tasted delicious. Sometimes simple food is the best food.
