Do you have little ones who think eating a vegetable is gross? Do they turn their noses up when you serve them a new vegetable recipe?

Hi everyone! My name is Cynthia and I share healthy, clean eating recipes over at Feeding Big. I am super excited to share this recipe for oven roasted garlic green beans at The Melrose Family today.
When my daughter was younger, I struggled to get her to try a new vegetable recipe. She loved corn and wanted it for every meal. I love cooking and, trust me, making corn as a side dish every night was just not something I wanted to do. In an effort to get her to try, and hopefully fall in love with a different vegetable, I tried many recipes.
One of the reasons I love this garlic green bean recipe so much is because it is so versatile. Here is a list of some add ons that your family may like:
- Mushrooms (this is a family favorite in my home)
- Sesame seeds
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
You can encourage your children to eat more vegetables by getting them involved in the making of this recipe. They will be so proud to show off their kitchen skills. I bet they will eat more of their green beans too!
Ways children can help make garlic green beans:
- Snap the ends off the green beans
- Line the cookie sheet
- Mix the green beans, butter and garlic
- Spread the garlic green bean mixture on the cookie sheet
Now that my daughter is older and her taste has changed, she has many favorite vegetable recipes. She loves broccoli apple salad with tahini dressing. It is a broccoli recipe with a healthy twist. We love the sweet and tart tahini dressing.
Oven Roasted Green Beans
- 1 lb green beans
- 3 tbsp butter
- 2 cloves garlic pressed or choped
- 1 onion chopped
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- In a large bowl, melt the butter in the microwave.
- Add the green beans, garlic, onions and stir well.
- Place the green bean mixture on the parchment paper. Add salt and pepper.
- Bake for about 5 - 8 minutes and then flip the green beans and bake another 5 - 8 minutes.
We love these beans with a little char on them, but you don't have to have them that way. Just take them out of the oven sooner.

I had a craving for green beans this week and picked up some at the market! I was thinking about what I wanted to do with them and roasting is perfect. Thanks for the inspiration!!!!
These look (and sound) ah-mazing. My family loves green beans, but your recipe is a bit more grown up than the usual plain way I serve them. I may be making green beans every night this week now with your simple and gorgeous recipe.
