We’re well into fresh-from-the-garden green bean season, and green beans are one of my favorites. My usual preparation involves steaming them for a few minutes then slathering them in fresh butter and a sprinkle of salt in order to get them on the table as quickly as possible!
But occasionally, everyone needs a change of pace, so I recently tried these balsamic roasted green beans. Quite delicious, I must say. The balsamic cooks down into a syrupy glaze, and there’s a subtle sweetness that emerges after spending some time in the oven that I don’t get from the standard steaming.
