These baked garlic green beans are easy, healthy, and delicious. The best part? They only use a few ingredients and you don’t have to dirty any pans or bowls to make them.
Green beans are ranked right up with carrots and bell peppers as one of my favorite vegetables.
I love that they have a crisp crunch and fresh flavor of their own, but that they’re easily enhanced by whatever seasonings you add to them.
These no clean-up baked garlic green beans hit all the right notes. The prep and clean-up couldn’t be easier. The beans are tossed with seasonings right on a foil-covered baking sheet, so you have no bowls or pans to wash.
The beans are coated with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper; just a few classic flavors to bring out the fresh snap of the green beans without taking over.

(it’s important to note that, most of the time when I make this recipe, I don’t measure; I just sprinkle and toss until it looks good. As long as you don’t get carried away with the salt and pepper, it’s hard to go wrong with this recipe)
1 pound fresh green beans (about 3 cups)
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic (fresh or jarred will work)
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Prepare the green beans by trimmed the ends of. Cut the beans into shorter pieces, if desired.
Spread the beans on the baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil and sprinkle the garlic over the beans. Add salt and pepper to taste. Toss the ingredients together until the beans are well coated.
Bake for 10-12 minutes and enjoy them while they’re hot.
