Easy Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms and Onions
I love to snack on veggies, and this easy vegan combination of Easy Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms and Onions is one of my favorites!
The simple technique of roasting makes veggies deep in flavor and super yummy. Serve them as a side dish, in a salad, tossed with pasta, or as a snack!
In fact, it kind of reminds me of that green bean casserole that everyone loves so much at the holidays. This is just a vegan, gluten-free, and really easy deconstructed version of that. Simplified. Classic. And, super easy to make!
Just chop a few veggies, or buy them pre-chopped from the produce section of your grocery store. And, you know, a little more or a little less of any of these veggies isn’t going to make a huge difference. Just be careful not to crowd the pan too much or the veggies will steam, and won’t get as browned.
For me, this is one serving, and like I said, I eat it as a snack while I’m cooking other things. It actually helps keep me from snacking on less healthy things while I cook.
If you make this as a side dish, I think it would serve two people. Also, this would be great tossed with some pasta and maybe a simple mac and cheese sauce or an easy white sauce.
Easy Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms and Onions Recipe:
- 2 cups green beans ends trimmed off, and cut into 1-2” pieces
- ½ cup sliced red onion
- 2 mushrooms sliced
- 2 teaspoons oil
- pinch of salt
- freshly grated pepper
- Preheat oven to 400 ° F.
- Place the prepared veggies in a large cast iron skillet or on a baking sheet, and drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Roast in 400° F oven, turning occasionally, for 20-25 minutes, or until a little browned outside and just tender inside.
Finish with a little extra salt and pepper, if desired (I like my green beans a little salty).
The recipe is easily doubled as needed, just be careful not to crowd the pan too much or the veggies will steam, and won't get as browned.
