How to make garlic green beans with tomatoes: 

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet with aluminum foil for easier clean up.
  2. Place green beans on baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Add garlic and seasonings. Toss well.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully toss with tomatoes. Return to oven and bake an additional 10 to 15 minutes until green beans reach desired tenderness.

 

Can I grill this recipe instead of baking it? 

You definitely can! We have a grill basket for grilling vegetables and it's so nice for stuff like this. These garlic green beans and tomatoes are great on the grill over low heat. They'll take a little longer to get tender but it's a nice addition to the flavors. 

 

Are these garlic green beans good for meal prep? 

They are a great choice for meal prep. The nice thing about making any kind of green bean recipe is that they are a sturdy veggie when you are making them fresh. They won't get soggy and flat in the fridge over a few days so you can easily prep these in advance to include in lunches or with quick dinner recipes throughout the week.

What's the best way to peel and chop garlic?

Fresh garlic is one of those crazy things that just always seems to make life difficult in the kitchen. Here are my best tips for making the peeling and chopping easier: 

  • Peel the outer papery skin away and separate the cloves. 
  • Peel the cloves themselves as well. 
  • The best place to start is by slicing the clove in half so you have a nice flat surface to chop from. 
  • Now you can cut to desired thickness and chop! 
  • The more finely chopped the garlic the more flavor it will impart to your dishes.
