Roasted Garlic Potatoes with Green Beans and Red Onions

Posted · 12 Comments

It’s the season for green beans!  As sad as I was that I didn’t plant any beans in early summer I was blessed to have been given the opportunity to harvest 7 pounds of fresh green beans right off the plant from a friend.  So what does one do with so many green beans?  I blanched and froze about 5.5 pounds and made a few recipes to share with you in the coming week.  One is a ferment that I’m hoping tastes great!

During the summer when I’m busy outdoors I try to spend as little amount of time as possible in the kitchen.  A great way to use seasonal green beans is to roast them right along side potatoes and red onions.  Throw in a couple of scrambled eggs from the backyard and there you have a nourishing and easy summer meal.

Roasted Garlic Potatoes with Green Beans and Red Onions


  • 4-5 medium potatoes, chopped
  • 1 small red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 lb of fresh green beans
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1tsp celtic sea salt
  • a variety of fresh herbs (I used thyme and tarragon)


  1. In an ovenproof dish combine all ingredients.
  2. bake at 425 degrees for 30 – 45 minutes.

Easy!  Buen Provecho!
