One of my favorite vegetables (aside from asparagus) is fresh green beans. I could eat them as a side dish in practically any meal. Peas on the other hand...not so much. Funny enough, growing up my little sister hated green beans and loved peas, while I was vice versa. So at least once a week one of us would end up with plate full of vegetables we couldn't stand. Such is life.
These days I do most of the cooking, so I dictate every veggie that ends up on my plate. And since I've discovered that roasting vegetables making them taste like candy, they're a mainstay at dinnertime.
With that said, time to kiss bland, boiled vegetables goodbye, folks. (Bleh!) Amp up the spices, get out your cast-iron skillet or rimmed baking sheet, and make those green beans shine!
Here are twenty easy recipes from some lovely food bloggers for you to try.
