Garlic Roasted Green Beans with Almonds

Garlic Roasted Green Beans with Almonds

These Garlic Roasted Green Beans with Almonds are my absolute favorite new side dish. I want to eat them with everything! The toasty, crunchy almonds, the crisp, seasoned green beans and the golden roasted garlic are a combination you won’t be able to get enough of – plus it goes with everything! 

Garlic Roasted Green Beans with Almonds

This dish is super easy to make and you could easily make a bigger batch if you’re serving it for Thanksgiving or a dinner party. It looks elegant, packs tons of flavor, and it’s healthy – what more could you ask for? Besides a way to eat as much garlic as you please and still have minty-fresh breath afterward, of course.

Garlic Roasted Green Beans with Almonds

Yield: 4 servings


  • 12 oz raw green beans, ends trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the green beans in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Stir to coat, making sure oil is evenly distributed on the beans. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Spread the green beans across a baking sheet in a single layer. Place the baking sheet in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove the beans from the oven and sprinkle the minced garlic and sliced almonds over top of the green beans. Stir to mix together and then spread to a single layer again. Place the baking sheet back in the oven and roast for an additional 5 minutes until green beans are cooked through and the garlic and almonds are lightly golden.

    You made my day!. I have been craving these green beans from a dim sum restaurant about 45 min away. I had to run to the store immediately and get the ingredients to make it with my lunch!

    Question – I have frozen GB’s in the freezer – would you suggest using them? And if yes – would you thaw them first? Maybe in the fridge for the day? Thanks – love the site – I’m a frequent flyer here 🙂

      Thanks Amy! I would definitely recommend fresh, the texture of the beans will be better. If you want to try it with frozen, I’d suggest allowing them to thaw first. Let me know how it turns out!

    I have made a similar recipe over the yrs, using a skillet, and then an electric skillet. I usually add soy sauce to salt them up a bit. And I frequently use caned rather than fresh as a time factor.
    I’ve done them w french cut and ‘kitchen cut’ but I prefer the whole green beans. (which do come canned too). quick and easy to get done.
