Simply Broiled Green Beans

10-Minute Green Beans

This lovely side dish can be dressed up with fresh herbs or a squeeze of lemon.  It’s also super delish with just salt and pepper.  Use the same cooking technique for asparagus. 

Foodie note: To reheat leftovers, put beans in a skillet, turn to medium and let the pan get hot, shaking occasionally.  Remove beans once they are hot.

Serves 4


1.5 tablespoons olive oil
1 lb. green beans (preferably organic, trimmed/washed)
salt/pepper to taste


  1. Set oven to broil. 
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (this makes for easy clean up).  
  3. Put cleaned and trimmed beans in center of baking sheet, add olive oil, sprinkle with salt/pepper and gently toss to coat. Spread out evenly on the pan. 
  4. Place beans on first or second rack from top in the oven, cook for 7-9 minutes.  Beans should be slightly crisp and bright green.  Accessorize with a fresh herb, such as dill, and a squeeze of lemon if you’re feelin’ fancy.
