Roasted green beans with sea salt and Asian dipping sauce--NEW!

Recipe: Roasted green beans with sea salt and Asian dipping sauce--NEW! NEW


    Need a quick, fun appetizer? Try my latest. It is super easy, unique and fun to serve.

Serves 6. This recipe can be easily multiplied too.


    One small handful of green beans per person. (maybe 10 each). Trim the ends off.

    Olive oil spray

    Sea salt to taste

    One half cup of sweet and sour sauce

    1 tsp (or to taste) of Asian hot chili oil


    Put your green beans in a 9 X 13 pan. Spray lightly with olive oil spray to coat them. Grind a bit of sea salt over them. Toss. The amount of sea salt can vary. If you like your potato chips salty you will like these with a little extra salt too.

    Roast in your 400 degree oven for 15 minutes. You want them crisp tender.

    Meanwhile, stir the Asian hot chili oil into the sweet and sour sauce. You can add or subtract hot chili oil, depending on your taste for spicy food.

Serving Suggestions:

    Serve the warm green beans with the dipping sauce on the side. I just put the beans on a platter and let people eat them with their fingers. The dipping sauce can be in a bowl on the side.

Enjoy. Cheers! Zola
