Roasted Green Beans

Beans are very good this way; succulent and flavourful.

2 servings
30 minutes - 10 minutes prep time

Roasted Green Beans
2/3 of a quart basket of green beans*
2 tablespoons sunflower seed oil
sea salt
black peppercorns, crushed
1/2 teaspoon crushed red chiles (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wash the green beans and trim off the ends. Put them in a baking dish. Toss them with the oil, and spread them out in a single layer, pretty much. Season them with the sea salt, black pepper and crushed chiles, if you are so inclined.

Roast the beans for 20 minutes, until tender and showing a few brown flakey spots. Serve hot.

* or, really, whatever quantity you think you are going to eat.

Last year at this time, it was Zucchini & Tomatoes Sautéed with Garlic, and Eggs with Tomatoes, Chinese Style.
