Roasted Green Beans with Goat Cheese

Jump to Recipe

Happy Monday!! I hope you guys all had a fantastic weekend. I had a 24 hour bug on Saturday and felt like I got hit by a car. But thankfully I’m all better. And I’m pretty sure it’s because of these green beans.

I’d like to introduce you guys to the most amazing side dish in the history of side dishes.

Roasted Green Beans with Goat Cheese.

Goat Cheese Roasted Green Beans

They will change the way you look at green beans. For example, you will want to roast every green bean you come across for the rest of your life and eat them all by yourself. No sharing. No way.

And that’s exactly what I did yesterday. I made a giant batch of these and then proceeded to have a marathon Sons of Anarchy session and eat them

Do you guys watch Son of Anarchy. I’m gonna be honest, I didn’t think I’d be that into it – but I’m literally hooked. 9 hours straight yesterday. Talk about a marathon SOA session. It was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a more mind provoking Sunday 🙂 And let’s just talk about Jax. Jacks? However you spell it, I love him.

I’m equally as obsessed with SOA as I am these green beans. I don’t think I’ll be able to make green beans any other way ever again. It’s just that good.

The goat cheese and the garlic and just icing on the cake too! You should make these every day for dinner. Forever.

    1. Katrina–so funny! I was telling Gaby on twitter yesterday that I made roasted string beans on Sunday night too. And I did not share them. And I may not ever make another green bean any other way again. So good!!

  1. I have just harvested a large bowlful of beans. This will be the perfect thing to try for dinner tonight! I never thought of roasting them before. Great idea!

  2. We made this, it was fantastic! Things we did different were: upped the garlic to half a head of crushed garlic, we added the goat cheese to the roasting pan right out of the hot oven to get it melty and after a minute dumped it over a bowl of raw spinach and squeezed a whole lemon over it. Super fast dinner! I highly recommended this recipe to anyone, even if you think you don’t like goat cheese!

    1. So glad to hear you loved it Terry!! And I love the alterations you made – I’m going to try that this week 🙂

  3. I came across this recipe today – it was a perfect fit as I had all the ingredients. Well, I made it and it turned out AMAZING! These are indeed addictive and I will be making this often. Thanks!!!

  4. 5 stars
    This was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, but used 1.5 lbs of green beans so it took a little longer to cook. I will definitely be making this again!
