Fresh or Canned Green Beans Camp?

Tell me… green beans. Yay or nay?  For me, definitely yay, but I’ll only serve them fresh.  I’ve never been a fan of the canned version.  I just don’t like the watery soft texture of the beans.

Green beans have an odd smell when you first open the can too.  Plus, I didn’t grown up with canned beans, so it’s not something I’ve ever been accustomed to.

I picked up these fresh green beans from a produce stand in Maryland when I went to visit my sister and her family last week.  

We were getting ready for one of many feasts that we had while I was there, and I wanted to contribute by making a couple of healthy dishes.

Preparing Fresh Green Beans For Roasting

Maryland hasn’t been informed that fresh green beans should be reasonably priced though, especially during the summer months.  I think I paid almost $5 for a pound.  Yikes!  

Maybe they were organic and I just didn’t notice.  

To prepare green beans for roasting, first place them in a colander and rinse them with cool water.

Next, remove the stem by snapping them off with your fingers. Farmer’s markets usually leave the stems on, but many grocery stores already remove them.

Finally, remove the tips with a paring knife. You don’t have to do this, but out of habit I do. I also line up the green beans and try to cut them in evenly sized pieces.

Additional Roasted Vegetable You Make Like

Regardless, this parmesan roasted green beans are so tasty and worth every delicious pricy bite!  

I love roasting all types of vegetables. Roasting veggies brings out the natural sweetness with a delicious depth of flavor.

Try these recipes as well:

  • cauliflower – Parmesan roasted cauliflower. Simple recipe that pairs nicely with any protein dish.
  • sweet potatoes with sage – Delicious fall favorite dish. The aroma itself is fantastic.
  • simple roasted beets – this recipe is sure to convert those non-beet eaters. Nature’s candy!

This dish is one of my favorites as well as these .

Roasting veggies brings out their natural flavors, and when you coat these green beans with simple seasonings they take a drastic turn from good tasting to scrumptious!

Add these beans to any of your favorite main dishes!  These would taste delicious with meatloaf or beef saltado.  You can even over cook the beans and eat them as a crunchy appetizer or snack!

  1. These sound delicious. I’m with you, no canned beans for me either. Although on thanksgiving my mother in law insists the casserole be made with canned. That’s my only exception. Green beans are so easy to grow – very low maintenance. I’ve got 5 bags frozen fresh from the garden, so I’m always looking for new ways to prepare. Thanks.
