How to Bake Green Beans

I love roasting vegetables, in fact, we have already shared our recipes for roasted cauliflower, potatoes, broccoli, carrots, and more. Baked green beans are sweet, tender, and delicious. You can keep them simple and roast them with oil, salt, and pepper or try our garlic caper mix for an extra pop of flavor.

To roast the beans, follow these simple steps. (The full recipe is below.)

  • Toss trimmed green beans with oil, salt, and pepper, and then spread them onto a baking sheet, making sure that they are in one layer. If they are piled on top of each other, they will steam instead of roast.
  • Bake the beans in a 425° F oven until tender and slightly wrinkled. This takes 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Toss the roasted beans with a mixture of minced garlic and capers, and then roast them for another few minutes. Serve the green beans with some fresh dill scattered over the top. So good!

I love these beans with mashed potatoes and gravy or on the side to these juicy skillet pork chops. We also use this garlic and caper flavor combination when making this baked salmon. These beans and that salmon would be an excellent duo.

Here’s our easy roasted green beans recipe made with garlic, capers, and herbs. You can make these beans in about 20 minutes! Our family loves these tasty, perfectly cooked green beans!

In the recipe below, we have shared a basic recipe as well as an optional step to finish the beans with a mixture of garlic, capers, and herbs (delicious).

Makes 4 servings

You Will Need

Basic Roasted Green Beans

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound green beans, stem ends snapped off

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Optional Garlic Caper and Herb Version

2 tablespoons drained capers, roughly chopped

1 tablespoon minced garlic, 3 to 4 cloves

1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill or use 1 teaspoon dried dill


    1Heat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat — lining the pan is not entirely necessary, but this does help with cleanup.

    2In a large bowl, toss the green beans with the oil, salt, and black pepper. Add the seasoned beans to the baking sheet. Spread them out into one layer.

    3Roast until the beans are tender and a little wrinkled, 10 to 15 minutes.

    4Serve or continue to the next step if you are making the garlic herb green beans.

    5Add the garlic and capers to the roasted beans. Toss well, spread everything out into a single layer, and continue to roast for another two to three minutes so that the garlic cooks. Toss well, and then serve with the dill sprinkled over the top.

Adam and Joanne's Tips

  • Dill Substitute: Any fine herb can be used to substitute the dill. Try basil, parsley, cilantro or tarragon (use about half the amount of tarragon since it has a stronger flavor).
  • Nutrition Facts: The nutrition facts provided below are estimates. We have used the USDA database to calculate approximate values. The garlic, caper, and herb mixture is included in the calculations.

    I love roasted vegetables so I was interested in trying the herb roasted green beans. I roasted them with garlic and capers(no herbs) and really liked the flavor of the beans. Liked the sweetness of flavor that the roasting brought out. Only downside was that the green beans at the grocery store were small and kind of “sad” looking. Would like to try the recipe again when I can find some fresh ones at a local farmers market when summer comes around again. Thanks for the recipe.
