Spicy Roasted String Beans


I love my roasted veggies. Any chance I get, I take the opportunity to roast any vegetable I can get my little paws on. For this, I used string beans. I actually needed to use them up as they were sitting in the fridge begging to be cooked. They were saying "Eat me! Please, eat me!" I replied, "I don't know what to make with you." The only choice I came up with was to roast them.

Seasoned it with salt, pepper, paprika and hot sauce to give it that little kick. I was going to use chili powder, but then I realized that I didn't have any in the spice shelf. Grr... That's another ingredient I need to add to the growing grocery list. My faithful tobasco had to make due for now. Love it. Topped it with some fresh grape tomatoes.

A simple healthy meal with a little kick.



Spicy Roasted String Beans

1 bundle string beans
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper
1-2 tsp Paprika
1-2 Tbsp Hot Sauce

Preheat your oven to 350˚F

Toss the string beans in the olive oil, salt, pepper, paprika and hot sauce. Make sure to coat them evenly. You may add more or put in less hot sauce to your preference.

Place them on an ungreaased baking sheet and into the oven for 30 min.

Ooh, roasted beans. I roast everything, but haven't yet tried beans. I can imagine how the spiciness would be a good counterpoint to the slight sweetness of the beans.

A new way of seeing an old veg is always cool :D. I always do my stringbeans the same: a bit of oil, salt and pepper, and sliced almonds.
