Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Toss green beans, bell pepper and oil in a large bowl. Add orange zest, salt and crushed red pepper to taste; toss to combine. Spread on a large baking sheet. Roast the vegetables, turning once halfway through cooking, until tender and slightly wilted, about 15 minutes.



Cut Down on Dishes: A rimmed baking sheet is great for everything from roasting to catching accidental drips and spills. For effortless cleanup and to keep your baking sheets in tip-top shape, line them with a layer of foil before each use.

Love it I've made this quite a few times and everyone has always loved it. I roast them a little longer because I like them soft. It's also interesting that I only just (after making it about five times) realized the zest is in long thin strips. I always grate the zest into tiny pieces so you get some in every bite. Never heard a complaint! Pros: Delicious Cons: None Read More

This was pretty good. I was kind of worried about the orange zest but it really added something special to the green beans and peppers. I'd definately make this again. Read More

Great flavors and easy prep. I love green beans and look for new ways to prepare them. This was not only a tasty side dish dish but a visually beautiful one. I used orange and yellow bell peppers instead of red and I loved the colors. I don't know if the crushed red pepper was necessary but I didn't mind it. I think a toasted sesame seed garnish would be a nice addition. Maybe soy sauce instead of salt? I think the orange and crushed red pepper makes me think Asian I guess. Also I'd be inclined to add garlic next time but I add garlic to nearly everything. Read More
