Roasted Garlic Green Beans and Potatoes

Great little side dish that goes well with just about anything.  I’ve served this with lamb, and also with roasted chicken and pork since the oven is already going and it’s easy to just toss it in.  You can use any variety of potatoes, but my favorite is purple – very colorful!

  • 1 bunch fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 3-4 medium potatoes, course dice 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • crushed red pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 400.  Arrange green beans and potatoes on a baking sheet, and toss with oil, garlic, salt and pepper.  Add a pinch of crushed red pepper if desired.  Roast at 400 degrees until tender and lightly browned, about 20 minutes, tossing once.
