This Roasted Green Beans with Feta Cheese recipe is the perfect spin on your traditional green beans!
I wanted to begin this post by letting you know that I am thrilled to have joined up with Milk Means More to bring you delicious and nutritious recipes containing cow’s milk (which also includes yogurt and most cheeses). Of course all opinions are and will continue to be my own.
Up until about a year ago, I almost exclusively steamed vegetables. Of course steaming is a healthy method of cooking vegetables since there is no need to add extra fat (saturated) or spices and the vegetables retain all of their nutrients since they are cooked above the water level in the sauce pan.
Since then, I have branched out and discovered the method of roasting vegetables. Let me tell you, my steamer has been getting a bit neglected lately and I’m loving it (except for when I make my mashed cauliflower recipe).
Roasting is just as nutritious as steaming but with the extra benefit of healthy fats when using olive oil or other oils containing high percentages of mono and poly-unsaturated fats. I prefer to use my olive oil sprayer to both coat the aluminum foil as well as spray the vegetables. However, if you don’t have an oil sprayer you can add a few tablespoons of olive oil to a large bowl and mix it together with the vegetables prior to adding them to the baking pan.
I used frozen green beans with this recipe since I always keep frozen vegetables on hand, but feel free to use fresh green beans instead.
