These are the best roasted green beans! Fresh green beans are cooked with seasonings until crisp tender, then topped with fantastic Sriracha almonds for a little added kick!
My son grimaces every time he sees me cutting up green beans or broccoli. But once roasted, he’ll have two or three servings. Because roasted vegetables. Are they not just the best?!
I could pretty much make my favorite roasted broccoli with every meal, but it is nice to mix things up a bit. Roasted green beans are a close second, if not tied, as awesome side dishes go.
As if roasted green beans aren’t delicious enough on their own, I sprinkled some of these Sriracha flavored almonds on top (affiliate link)…and ohmygod. Have you tried them? SO GOOD. They’re really what make this roasted green beans recipe next level.
How to Roast Green Beans
- Wash the green beans in cold water, then dry them. Line them up on a cutting board and slice a small portion off the ends.
- Transfer them to a large baking sheet (coated with nonstick cooking spray) and lay them out in a single layer. (As vegetables cook, they give off moisture. If they’re too close together, they can end up soggy.) Spreading them out gives them breathing room and ensures they brown and become crisp tender.
- Drizzle them with olive oil and seasonings; toss to coat.
- Roast until crisp-tender and a little charred.
- When they done cooking, toss them some chopped up Sriracha almonds or grated Parmesan. Serve immediately.
How Long To Roast Green Beans
Fresh green beans take about 15-18 minutes at 425 degrees F depending on how well you like them cooked. You can easily adjust the cooking time with great results, though, if you’re trying to time them with something else you’re baking in the oven for dinner. If you’re cooking chicken, for instance, at 350 degrees F, you can simply add the green beans to the oven 25 minutes before the chicken should be finished.
We loved these roasted green beans so much, I made another batch for lunch the next day. Nothing else. Just roasted green beans. Well, and half a container of the almonds.

Reader Questions and Reviews
I actually don’t LOVE green beans unless they’re roasted either…so you can count me in for these!
I love this Amy! We grow green beans during the summer so this recipe is just perfect timing! Also…my husband. Can’t keep him out of these almonds – they are sooo good! Crack indeed!
Made this for Father’s Day dinner last night – I couldn’t find the Sriracha at my local market, so I used the wasabi ones. Big hit. Thanks for a great recipe!
OMG. I LOVE a good green bean side dish, and this one looks amazing!!!! Although, I have to say, I’m not sure the almonds would last in time to make the green beans, I am such a sucker for sriracha flavor, and I love me some Blue Diamond Almonds, I can’t wait to try these!!
omg. i need this. stat.
Roasted vegetables DO just have it going on. and you know what?! I’ve never roasted green beans?!! Trying this!! and yeah those Blue Diamond Bold Sriracha almonds? Brilliant! love!
I almost made this exact thing Amy!!!! I asked my family what goes with sriracha almonds and everyone said green beans, duh. haha. This looks sooooo good and now I’m regretting my choice to eat all of mine straight up instead of making some green beans. :)
Omg! I haven’t seen these ones. Have you tried the wasabi? So good! Off to check my market tomorrow. And it looks like the family is getting roasted green beans with their chicken. Lol.
Can you believe I’ve never roasted green beans? That will change ASAP!
WOW! Can’t wait to try.
And a vegetable that Dad likes!
Spicy with green beans is always a winner. The crunch of almond sounds delicious, too!
Adding bacon is always a winner.
Have you tried sautéed green beans with bacon and red peppers with Trevor?
Green beans are one of my favs in stir fry recipes. Trevor doesn’t like red peppers – YET – but I do saute brussels with bacon and molasses that he loves. Baby steps.
I love simple green bean sides and these look delish!
