Roasted Asparagus and Green Beans

Simple ingredients and easy shortcuts make roasted asparagus and green beans a delicious, family friendly side dish you’ll make again and again.

Friends, I know you’re all about keeping things simple.

And what better way to mix up your spring and summertime vegetable routine than with a side dish that cooks in under 10 minutes?

Shortcuts for Roasted Asparagus & Green Beans

I almost called calling recipe an asparagus and roasted green bean salad, but I was afraid it might scare off the kiddos. So let’s call this a side dish, shall we???

I’m all for recipes that are from scratch, but I know we can all use some help now and then.

Check out the shortcuts available in this easy recipe:

  • Hard boiled eggs – these are available at most grocery stores. Or, do what I do and make a batch of hard boiled eggs in your Instant Pot at the beginning of the week. They’re easy to throw into salads or as a grab and go breakfast or snack.
  • Precooked bacon – Find this at the grocery store or make bacon ahead of time. I like to make a double batch on a weekend and keep some in the fridge. It will also freeze really well and you can pull out the four slices you need for this recipe.
  • Prepared salad dressing – while it’s great to make your own dressing, it’s not always realistic on a busy night. Use what you already in your fridge!

    Any vinaigrette will do but I like a balsamic vinaigrette the best for this dish.

I’ve made this several times now & served it wam as a side dish. Husband who dislikes green beans gobbles it down & even requests it for dinner. Maybe one day I will get to chill it & serve it as a salad.
