🍅 Ingredients you’ll need

🥣 How to make (step-by-step photos)
1️⃣ Step One: Prep oven and cut vegetables
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 C) while prepping the tomatoes and green beans. Then wash vegetables before cutting:
- To cut tomatoes: How you cut tomatoes depends on which varietal you choose. Cut large tomatoes into quarters and cherry tomatoes into halves. The key is to cut them into similar-sized pieces to the green beans.
- To cut green beans: Cut off the stems from the bean pods, then slice the bean into 1 inch pieces so they are similar in size to the tomato slices.
👉 Tip: When roasting different kinds of vegetables together, slice them into same-sized pieces so they’re easier to eat. If they’re the same size, they will also have similar cooking times.
2️⃣ Step Two: Season and prepare to bake
Add the cut tomatoes and green beans to a roasting pan or baking sheet and toss with olive oil until they’re coated in oil. Then add them to the pan so they’re evenly spaced.
Top the vegetables with sliced garlic, salt, pepper and any other dried or fresh herbs of your choice.
3️⃣ Step Three: Bake the green beans and tomatoes
Roast the vegetables in the preheated oven until they become golden brown. Depending on your oven, this takes about 25 minutes.
Flip the veggies about 10-15 minutes into baking to make sure they evenly brown on all sides.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven and eat immediately as a side dish. If you plan to save them for later, let them cool before storing.
🧊 How to store
Roasted vegetables are great as leftovers! Here’s how to store them:
- Refrigerator storage: Store roasted green beans and tomatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days
- Freezer storage: For best taste and texture, we don’t recommend freezing roasted tomatoes as they will lose their texture when thawed
