Prep time: 15 mins. Cook time: 15 mins. Total time: 30 mins.
tablespoons coconut oil
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 egg, beaten
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
12 ounces fresh green beans
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a large bowl whisk the oil, garlic, egg, and salt together.
Toss in the green beans and coat well.
Sprinkle with Parmesan on the green beans and toss gently.
Place evenly on a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
To crisp, heat for a minute or two under the broiler.
garlic powder to taste
onion powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
3 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1/8 teaspoon sesame seeds
In a stainless steel pot over medium-high heat, combine green beans, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Cook covered until the beans begin to sweat. Remove lid and stir occasionally until beans are tender.
When the beans and spices have begun to 'burn' on the bottom of the pan, which will lend a grilled flavor, stir in the olive oil and turn off heat. Cover, and let stand a few minutes. Scrape the bottom of the pan to incorporate the 'burnt' spices. Beans should have a dark, caramel color, but not black. Add sesame seeds before serving.
