Roasted Green Beans

I got this idea from a blog I recently came across that's now one of my favorites. I've been trying more and more to cook from scratch and eat less preservatives and I'm shocked at how hard it is to find easy quick recipes. This one is going to become a major staple in my house.

2 lbs green beans (trimmed)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Sea Salt

Heat oven to 450. Place beans on baking sheet and drizzle with oil. Turn beans to coat with oil.
Roast 15 minutes until brown, shaking tray ocassionally for even browning.
Sprinkle with salt and enjoy!

You can do the same thing with aspargas. But I add a little minced garlic before roasting and squeeze a little lemon on it when its done...yummy!
