Balsamic Roasted Green Beans

I love green beans but sometimes it gets challenging finding ways to make them differently. We love the slow cooked and stir fried versions, but this recipe gives us a roasted version as well.  They almost taste like sweet and like candy.  Hope you enjoy them too.


Balsamic Roasted Green Beans


  • 8 ounces portobello mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 pound green beans, cut into about bite sized pieces
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
  2. Rinse the mushrooms and let them dry. Then slice them into 1/2 inch thick pieces.
  3. Cut the ends of the mushrooms off and cut them into bite sized pieces.
  4. Place the green beans and mushrooms into a gallon zip lock bag.
  5. Whisk together olive oil and balsamic vinegar and pour over vegetables in the bag.
  6. Shake the bag until all the vegetables are lightly coated.
  7. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
  8. Spread the vegetables out in single layer on the cookie sheet.
