👉 Ready to make roasted green beans and potatoes? Let’s do it!

- Potatoes: one pound of potatoes; any type will do, but we like waxy potatoes like red or new

🥣 Recipe instructions (with step-by-step photos)
1️⃣ Step One: Prep vegetables
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 C). Wash and dry your vegetables before cutting them.
- To cut green beans: Cut the ends off of the beans if desired, then cut into 1 inches pieces per bean.
- To cut potatoes: Cut any spuds from the potatoes, then cut into 1 inch pieces.
👉 Prepping tip! Cut your green beans and potatoes into similarly sized pieces. This will help them roast evenly and give them extra crunch.
2️⃣ Step Two: Season vegetables and add to baking sheet
Place prepared vegetables on a sheet pan or roasting pan.
Drizzle olive oil over the vegetables, then toss with your hands or a spatula. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add sliced garlic on top.
👉 Pro tip: Keep the green beans and potatoes separated on the baking sheet so that if the green beans cook faster you can remove them and continue to cook the potatoes.
3️⃣ Step Three: Roast vegetables
Bake the vegetables in the oven for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. The green beans should still have some crispiness to them (overcooking will cause them to be mushy).
To ensure even roasting, stir the green beans and potatoes halfway through cooking time. Remove the green beans and continue cooking the potatoes until they are golden brown.
Remove the pan from the oven. Serve your vegetables immediately if using as a side dish, or let them cool and then use as a topping for salads or bowls.
