I'm all about roasting veggies. I roast just about any vegetable that you could think of. I've actually changed people's mind on certain vegetables that they thought they didn't like. You didn't like them until you had them roasted!
For most veggies all you have to do it spend a little time chopping and peeling and then it's as simple as throwing them all on a parchment lined baking pan and turning them a few times.
Tossing green beans in a little oil and Parmesan brings out a totally amazing flavor in them. Try these on your picky little eaters, I bet you can get them to eat their veggies this way.
Parmesan Roasted Green Beans with Mayo/Garlic Dipping Sauce
recipe from Lisa@The Cutting Edge or Ordinary
1 pound fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
For the dipping sauce:
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle olive oil and Parmesan cheese over the green beans. No need to measure, just make sure they are coated in oil (not swimming in it) and then top them off with a healthy sprinkle of cheese. Toss to coat and get the cheesy goodness all over those beans. Bake for 10 minutes, then stir them up a bit and return them to the oven for another 10 – 15 minutes, depending on how well done you like them. I like mine to have some good color on them.
While they are cooking, stir together the ingredients in a small bowl. Dip and enjoy!
