This recipe for Roasted Green Beans with Almonds is a simple and classic way to prepare green beans for a side dish.



  • 1 1/2 pounds green beans, trimmed
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Toss beans, garlic, almonds, oil, thyme and salt in a large bowl. Spread out on a large rimmed baking sheet and roast, stirring the beans once or twice until the beans are softened and blistered in spots and the almonds are browning, 15 to 17 minutes.


If you do not eat almonds you can omit them or substitute another chopped nut, such as walnuts or pecans.

Feel free to substitute yellow wax beans for some or all of the green beans.
