I found this green bean recipe in a local Ralphs’ Supermarket flyer and in my mind this dish is just about as perfect as you could find.
- 2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
- 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/2 inch wide strips
- 1 small red onion, sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced
- 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 tsp. olive oil
- Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place beans,bell pepper, onion, garlic, balsamic vinegar and olive oil on a sheet pan. Toss to coat vegetables with oil mixture. Roast for about 20 minutes or until vegetables reach desired tenderness. Season vegetables with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any leftovers. Serves 8.
