Garlic Sesame Green Beans

The perfect side dish

I truly believe veggie side dishes can make or break a meal. They’re the perfect way to switch up your usual dinners since there are endless ways to prepare them.

These roasted green beans are honestly one of my favorite sides. They’re roasted to perfection, and pair well with just about anything.

Serve them for your weekly dinner, holiday meal or for a small family gathering!

The green beans are tossed in low-sodium soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic and sesame seeds, then roasted in the oven for about 30 minutes.

They absorb so much good flavor, while staying crunchy and delicious.
