Roasted Green Beans with Basil
Created by Carla Hall for Feeding America’s 5-Ingredient Dinner Challenge
Serves 4

1 lb. green beans, trimmed
8 garlic cloves, in skins, ends trimmed
3 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
1 small onion, cut into quarter-inch-thick half-moons
Kosher salt
¼ cup sliced fresh basil leaves
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice

1. Preheat the oven to 450F.

2. Toss the green beans and garlic cloves with 2 tablespoons oil on a half sheet pan. Arrange in a single layer on one side of the pan. Arrange the onion slices on the other side of the pan in a single layer and rub with the remaining tablespoon of oil. Sprinkle a half-teaspoon of salt over all the ingredients.

3. Roast until the green beans are browned and tender, about 25 minutes. Squeeze the garlic out of their skins into a large bowl. Mash the garlic, then add the green beans, onions, basil, and one-quarter teaspoon of salt. Toss well, then toss in the lemon juice. Serve immediately.
