The green beans were tossed with some smashed garlic, a little mustard, tarragon, olive oil and freshly ground salt and pepper. They were roasted in a hot oven and developed nice caramelized areas and the flavor was outstanding. Only 1 tablespoon of olive for the entire pound of green beans, and that could even be reduced. Next time I’ll post a photo.
Oven Roasted Haricot Vert
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
1 pound haricot vert (or regular green beans) trimmed
3 garlic cloves, smashed
1/4 cup water
1 T EVOO
2 tsp chopped tarragon, or any herbs
2 tsp whole grain mustard
Freshly ground sea salt and freshly ground pepper
Toss green beans with all ingredients. Place on a large sheet pan and roast for 20 minutes. If they are still too crunchy for your taste, reduce heat to 325 and continue roasting until desired tenderness, about 5 more minutes.
