What kind of green beans will be on your Thanksgiving table this Thursday?
Classic green bean casserole? (Check out Serena’s version of the traditional dish with her Healthy Green Bean Casserole featuring cremini mushrooms and caramelized onions.)
Or are you looking for something a little bit different?
Here’s a super easy roasted green bean recipe I love using garlic and Chinese 5 spice powder (which is mixture of cinnamon, cloves, fennel, star anise, and Szechuan peppercorns.)
Chinese 5 Spice Roasted Green Beans
- Yield: 8 servings. 1x
- 1 1/2 pounds green beans, rinsed and trimmed
- 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 teaspoon Chinese 5 spice powder
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a large bowl, toss green beans with canola oil, garlic, 5 spice powder, black pepper and salt. Spread out on a large baking tray with a lip or a large roasting pan. Roast in oven for about 15 minutes, or until beans start to blister, stirring a few times.
- Remove from oven and add beans to a serving bowl. Drizzle with sesame oil and toss. Serve warm.
