I must admit that I have been doing this recipe wrong for years. I would always manually rub oil onto each individual green bean. Talk about a non-lazy way of doing things! Then, the other day, I was marinating some vegetables, and it hit me! Why am I not using a plastic bag for these, too?!
And what a time saver this is! Instead of the usual ten-minutes of rubbing oil all over these bad-boys, I just tossed everything into a bag and shook. (My husband was very appreciative of this little idea-bubble of mine as he has made these a fair few times and hates the clean-up!) Of course, this is not to say you can't still do this with your hands. I mean, I'm not telling you how to cook. Well, maybe I am...but hey, I'm all for getting into your cooking!
All in all, this is one of the easiest (and now laziest) side-dish recipes I know. So, here it is to share with all of you other lazy fodmappers!
- 1 lb Green Beans, cleaned and cut
- 1 Tbsp Garlic Oil (or as needed)
- 1 tsp Celery Salt
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Toss together green beans and oil in a resealable plastic bag.
- Add celery salt to bag and toss to coat.
- Spread green beans flat on foil covered baking sheet.
- Bake 20 minutes.
- There are a lot of seasonings that work well with this method, from plain salt and pepper to Cajun seasoning (make sure it doesn't have garlic or onion). Have fun experimenting!
- Serve these over a bed of quinoa for a filling meal.
- Use blanched green beans for an extra crunch!
