Our Parmesan Green Beans are tossed in Parmesan and seasonings to give them a crisp coating that gives way to perfectly tender roasted green beans. Roasted veggies are such an easy side dish and these are no exception.
I still remember the first time I roasted a vegetable. It was broccoli, which probably comes as no surprise to anyone that’s followed along for any amount of time. I’m obsessed with broccoli. 😉
Anyway, I had seen the method somewhere and gave it a try and my world was transformed. Vegetables take on such a different flavor when they’re roasted.
They don’t even compare to steamed (or ew…boiled) vegetables.
That same leap happens between fresh and frozen veggies. If you think you hate vegetables, be sure that you’ve had them cooked from fresh and not frozen. They’re entirely different things, I swear.
These roasted Parmesan green beans are beyond simple and the seasonings and Parmesan give them great flavor and texture.
The Parmesan crisps up to give these a breaded texture. I’ve been known to eat them like french fries and serve them with garlic aioli as a dipping sauce!

Green Beans – You’ll need some fresh, trimmed green beans for this recipe. Highly recommend using fresh beans for this, though frozen would likely work. Do not use canned green beans in this recipe.
Parmesan – A lot of the flavor from these roasted green beans will come from the parmesan cheese, and it also gives the beans a slightly crunchy coating. You’ll want to use the powdery kind, not the shredded kind.
Oil – I like to roast these green beans in avocado oil, but olive oil will also work well.
Seasoning – Just a simple mix of salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder will be enough to add some good extra flavors to these parmesan roasted green beans.
- It’s such a simple recipe! Green beans, parmesan, oil, and seasoning. That’s pretty basic stuff, but it tastes wonderful.
- Roasted green beans are the perfect tender-crisp texture. Not soggy like canned green beans and not too crunchy either.
- These parmesan green beans are perfect as a low carb side dish or even as a low carb snack!
How To Roast Green Beans:
- Prepare – For these green beans, you’ll want to toss the beans in a bit of avocado or olive oil and then add in some grated Parmesan (we like the powdery kind here), garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper.
- Mix – Stir all that together to coat the green beans and then spread them out on a baking sheet. You could likely use shredded Parmesan cheese here as well, but we like the way the powdery kind coats the beans better.
- Roast – It’ll take about 25 minutes for the parmesan green beans to roast, stirring halfway through, or until the veggies are as tender as you’d like. We love this recipe because it’s so quick and simple and really versatile. You could mix up the seasonings, skip the Parmesan, use your favorite flavored oil, add some other veggies to the mix, or even throw in some sliced sausage to roast alongside the beans! The sky is the limit here.
425 degrees is the magic number! A nice hot oven allows the natural sugars in the vegetables to caramelize a bit and their natural sweetness comes out more, really transforming the taste.
Olive oil or avocado oil are our preferred choices. We mostly use avocado oil for cooking and EVOO for things like salad dressings. We buy both from Thrive Market, a membership store similar to Costco, where you can shop online at great prices. Thrive has many membership options available and we find that it easily pays for itself. Plus, I love that you can sort by diet. Their keto selection is top notch!
Fresh green beans are best for roasting, though frozen will work. Do not use canned green beans in this recipe.
Yes, these parmesan roasted green beans will last for about 3 to 4 days if the refrigerator if they are tightly sealed. You can reheat them in the oven or the microwave!
You bet! I like them roasted in the oven but an air fryer can make things pretty simple too, especially if you don’t want to heat the whole house up. Check out this air fried green bean recipe, it’s also low carb!
