    • Instead of water, you can use vegetable stock or chicken stock to cook your beans initially. This will add some amazing flavor to this green beans recipe.
    • If you cannot find fresh green beans, you can also use frozen green beans. Just make sure you thaw and drain the beans before use.
    • After boiling your beans for the first time, a good tip is to immediately place them in an ice bath to stop them from cooking. This will help you avoid mussy green beans.

    Before you start cooking your keto beans, make sure all of your green beans are fresh. This means that none of your snap beans will be wilted or have spots. If you find spotted or wilted beans, then throw these away.

    Once you’ve accessed your beans, then you should wash them thoroughly under running water.

    15 minute bonus points

    Any recipe that comes together in 30 minute or less gets major bonus points in my book. These Moroccan balsamic green beans take only 15.

    The green beans get a quick boiling water bath (also known as blanching) before getting tossed with the garlic, herbs, balsamic vinegar and seasoning.

    It all comes together with a few quick flicks of the wrist.

    Balsamic Garlic Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms

    It’s always a challenge to find simple yet delicious ways to serve vegetables to my family, but these Balsamic Garlic Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms definitely fit the bill.

    They’re easy, delicious, and healthy. What more could you ask for?

    I tried the recipe and it was absolutely delicious! I don’t think I’ve ever had green beans this delicious before.

    I feel like it’s important to serve vegetables with dinner, but I often resort to tossing a bag of baby carrots on the table with a bottle of Ranch dressing.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that, especially since that’s one veggie I know my kids will eat! But every once in a while I like to serve something a little more fancy, if you know what I mean? And balsamic vinegar makes just about anything seem fancy!

    These delicious roasted beans and mushrooms have just a few simple ingredients, and once they’re in the oven, I don’t need to fuss over them.

    My husband and I especially love green beans prepared this way, and my kids will eat them too (although a few of them bypass the mushrooms), which makes this the perfect side dish for almost any meal.

    I made these as a side dish for our Thanksgiving feast yesterday. Delicious! It came out wonderful!

    I also added some orange zest grated on top at the end, with the salt and pepper, and it really added a delicious and unique taste. I’ll be making it again, for sure.

    I love that this dish is simple enough for every day dining, but classy enough for company and special occasions.

    This is the kind of recipe that I know I’ll be making for years to come!


    These were absolutely fabulous.

    I don’t normally take the time to review but this dish deserves it. Easy and delicious! Will serve to company next weekend. Sure to impress!

    This was very good. We couldn’t get enough of it. Thanks for another great way to get vegetables.

    I made these and are delicious. Everyone loved them.

    I loved it. We just drizzled balsamic glaze on top for a little extra flavor.

    Tips for Choosing and Storing Green Beans

    Appearance: Look for brightly colored beans that snap easily when bent. The skin should be smooth and tight. Avoid beans that have visible seeds and blemishes.

    Size: When it comes to green beans, bigger isn’t necessarily better.” When beans too large or excessively thick, they can get get tough or stringy. You’ll also lose that sharp, fresh green bean flavor.

    Storing: Keep unwashed green beans in a reusable container or plastic bag in the refrigerator crisper. Whole beans stored this way should keep for about seven days.

    Although no one will be disappointed when these delicious charred green beans make an appearance as a side dish, you can also get creative and use them in all kinds of recipes.

    • Make a Grilled Green Bean Salad with cherry tomatoes, shallots, and feta cheese. Toss with lemon juice, olive oil, and fresh black pepper,
    • Use them in a grilled vegetable pasta salad with all your other grilled veggie favorites. Add a store bought vinaigrette or make your own at home.
    • Serve them with a healthy ranch dip or hummus for a fun twist on the normal veggie and dip side.
    • Toss the green beans with some canned chickpeas, tomatoes, arugula, and goat cheese for a hearty vegetarian dish. Add olive oil, lemon juice, black pepper, and fresh basil,

    Tip for Preparing This Recipe:

    Use pre-cooked beets! Have you ever seen pre-cooked beets at the grocery store? Not canned beets, but the ones in the produce section in the package?

    Love Beets is one of the companies that makes them in case you&rsquore looking for a trusted brand. They make your beet experience super easy by packaging up quality organic beets that are already roasted for your munching convenience.

    The reason I suggest this is beets on their own require a substantial amount of time to cook. You can steam, roast, saute, or boil them, but regardless of the way you cook them, they will take more time than the green beans to cook.

    For this reason, I suggest either pre-cooking the beets yourself according to your favorite method, or buying the pre-cooked ones. Here is a tutorial from The Kitchn on How to Roast Beets.

    How to choose the best green beans:

    Use fresh! 100% use fresh. Don’t pull out any frozen green beans for this green bean salad, please. Look for bright green colored green beans with no brown spots. They should be firm (not limp), and they should snap when you bend them in half. If you follow these guidelines, then you’ll be using the freshest green beans!

    Roasted Green Beans with Balsamic-Browned Butter

    Your family will be licking the plate! Yes – it’s that good! This recipe for Roasted Green Beans with Balsamic-Browned Butter maximizes big flavors from roasting the beans, and from just a tiny bit of indulgently delicious browned butter. Perfect when you’ve got a bumper crop of summer beans, and also a healthier alternative to traditional green bean casseroles for the holidays (psssst … it’s a total Thanksgiving game-changer)!

    This Recipe Is: Ready in 30 Minutes or Less Vegetarian Gluten Free

    We’re gonna cause you deep embarrassment with this recipe, so we’re just apologizing right up front. Your family and friends will be unabashedly licking their plates. Oh, Miss Manners would be so appalled! Truly, it’s worth it, though … you’ll see …

    Browned butter is magical stuff. It’s like the yumminess of butter to the millionth power. (Ha! A little math fun for you!) And for health-conscious people like our THKers, the beauty is that a little decadent browned butter goes a long, looooong way. And, it makes pretty much anything – like these green beans (or probably even shoe leather or bicycle grease!) taste irresistible.

    We’ve witnessed this amazing phenomenon firsthand. If your kids gulp down their green veggies, we know you won’t mind if they lick their plates, too! (Now, when your best friend’s hubby starts licking his plate – ewwwww! – you’re kinda on your own … remember – we already apologized!)

    With just a handful of ingredients and almost no prep time for this recipe – we’re done apologizing. From here on out, we’re just sticking with “You’re welcome.”

    What’s your preference? Cut the little tails off, along with the stems, or leave them on? We’ve seen both ways in magazines and restaurants! Gretchen prefers to cut them off, Shelley leaves those cute tails on!

    Years ago, back in 2001, Cooking Light magazine first ran their recipe for Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Browned Butter . It’s since become legendary. As in, probably the single most fantastic recipe Cooking Light has ever published. In fact, six years ago when the magazine celebrated its 20th anniversary by publishing its top recipes of the first 20 years, that recipe was selected as their Best Vegetable Side Dish ever! And just last month, it was once again featured in Cooking Light’s article “Our 25 All-Time Favorite Recipes”! See … totally amazing!

    That asparagus recipe has become a mainstay at pretty much any holiday meal Shelley’s family serves (Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving …). It’s the recipe that taught her kiddos to love asparagus. Really. LOVE asparagus … and then it taught them to lick their plates. *SIGH* Oh, well … worth it!

    Lately, though, she’s adapted the browned butter sauce for other veggies. Mmmmmmm … broccoli (with pine nuts!) … her family actually liked it even better than the exalted asparagus! With just a tiny bit of this browned butter, the four of them ate nearly 2 pounds of broccoli at dinner! We’re not kidding when we say that this could just be the thing to get your kids eating their veggies!

    Bottom line: this browned butter sauce is amazing!

    When we were planning our THK Thanksgiving posts, Gretchen suggested we try the sauce with green beans. Ah-MAZING! And, since green beans are such a traditional food on America’s Thanksgiving tables, we’re gonna share this version of Shelley’s browned butter veggies with you first.

    It’s SOOOO much better than that traditional green bean casserole that nestles itself (and its extra calories) right around your midsection.

    Sure, it’d be fantastic with fresh summer beans (hint … hint … you’ll want to bookmark this recipe for next August!), but this is also just perfect at Thanksgiving with the beans we’ve still been finding in our local markets. In a pinch, you can even use the pre-washed, pre-trimmed, bagged green beans you often find in the produce section. Just don’t use frozen.

    Make-Ahead Tip: You can rinse and stem the green beans earlier in the day, or even the day before. You can get even further ahead by spreading all the beans out on a parchment-lined baking sheet and wrapping the whole thing in plastic, refrigerated until go-time. Then simply fire up the oven, hit those beans with a quick spray of olive or canola oil and a little salt and pepper. While they roast, you can get the butter browning.

    Making Browned Butter: If you’ve never done this before, don’t be nervous. You can SEE and SMELL when the butter is getting brown and toasty, and although you don’t want it to actually burn, this recipe is very forgiving. Just keep a vague eye on it while you’re prepping the rest of the meal – it’s really not that finicky!

    As you can see in the photos above, there is a specific progression that’s easy to watch. First, your butter will melt, and then it will foam. Finally, the milk solids will begin to fall to the bottom of the pan, at about the same time that you begin to smell a lovely, nutty aroma and see a gorgeous browned color. That’s the perfect time to pull the butter off the heat.

    Now, for most browned butter recipes (and after tasting this recipe, you’ll be dying to try others!), you would ideally pull your butter off the heat before the milk solids get quite as dark as they are in our fifth photo. If left too long, the butter will actually begin to blacken and lead you past making a browned butter sauce to a different sauce called beurre noir.

    What we want you to see here, though, is that this particular browned butter recipe just isn’t that picky. Even if you’re busy basting the Thanksgiving turkey and the butter gets a little too brown – don’t panic! Once the flavors of balsamic and soy sauce have been added, it’ll still be absolutely delicious (although we wouldn’t recommend letting the butter go much past how ours looks in photo 5).

    Also, some recipes will suggest that you strain the milk solids out of the browned butter, but for this recipe, that’s not necessary either!

    One tiny word of caution – once you’ve browned your butter and turned off the heat, stand back a bit as you add the balsamic vinegar and soy sauce. Especially as you pour in the first spoonful, your butter will sizzle and splatter up, so you want to be sure it doesn’t burn your hand or stain your carefully-chosen Thanksgiving ensemble!

    And remember: this isn’t just a recipe for Thanksgiving. It’s for every day, especially in the summer when green beans are really at their finest. Make it for your holiday gathering next Thursday, and then tuck it away … this is a recipe you’ll make again and again.
