Back in college, my friends and I would do what every other college kid does for spring break and go to the beach. There were a good number of us, so we rented this amazing ocean front apartment that had a pretty sick kitchen. After a couple nights of ridiculously long waits at pretty average restaurants, we decided to make use of said kitchen. Each of us made part of the meal, and while everything was delicious, the thing that stuck with me most were Jill’s green beans. “Really? Green beans?” you say. Really. While stupidly simple to make, they are simply out of this world. I bet they would be great on a grill too!
What about you? Do you like cooking on vacation? Part of traveling to me is checking out what the locals are eating. While I love going to random grocery stores and markets, when it comes to meals, we always search out a good restaurant filled with locals. However, this week The Kichtn is talking all about cooking while traveling, and I’m feeling a little inspired. Or maybe we will check this out.
Roasted Green Beans
Two handfuls of fresh green beans
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
Preheat the oven on broil.
Snap the ends off the beans and remove the strings on the sides. Wash them and pat dry.
Spread the beans out on a lined baking sheet and drizzle with the olive oil and garlic salt. Give it a stir to make sure that all the beans are covered with the oil and pop it in the oven for about 10-15 minutes*. About halfway through give them a stir. You’ll know they’re done when they start to crisp up.
*Time varies based on your oven. In the States, the top element in the oven seems to be very strong so it might be more like 10 minutes. Here it’s more like 20 minutes.
