Ingredient Line: 
1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed

½ large red onion, thinly sliced lengthwise
Ingredient Line: 
1 Tbs. garlic-flavored olive oil

1 tsp. lemon juice

¼ tsp. salt

1 pinch ground black pepper

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, or coat with cooking spray.

2. Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans and red onion, and blanch 3 minutes. Drain, then pat vegetables dry with paper towels.

3. Whisk together oil, lemon juice, mustard, salt, and pepper in large bowl. Add beans and onion slices; toss to coat.

Bake 7 to 10 minutes, or until bean ends begin to brown. Flip bundles with spatula so tie side is up, and bake 7 to 10 minutes more, or until all bean tips are brown. Transfer bundles to serving plate, and garnish with lemon slices and Hawaiian salt, if using.

Comments on this Recipe

For you

Love my Vegies!

baking veggies in oven if not covered in a type of ceramic vessel will dry them out. I prefer to put fresh veggies on indoor grill. Not only does it cook them but seals in the vitamins and minerals as well as flavor. can season to your like on the grill. the one I bought this yr (online) is extremely awesome - no mess, can sear the food - no heat in the kitchen. Can grill/sear anything - since im VEGAN only veggies - some fruits go on the grill. Then after they are seared (asparagus is good this way too) place them on platter: add blanched almonds, no need for any other additions I do use black pepper over all. No oils or salts. Most veggies grown in the ground have their own minerals don't need to add more. can also grill mushrooms with the beans - tomatoes - and pineapple if you choose.
