Customize this green bean recipe to please your palate (and your pantry stock). In place of feta cheese, try goat or cheddar, and if walnuts aren't your favorite BFF for beets, try almonds hazelnuts, or pecans.




  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. In a large roasting pan combine green beans, beets, and shallots. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat.

  • Roast, uncovered, for 45 to 50 minutes or until beans and beets are tender, stirring once or twice and adding walnuts during the last 10 to 15 minutes of roasting.

  • To serve, transfer roasted vegetables to a serving platter. Sprinkle with cheese.


Out of walnuts? Try slivered almonds or coarsely chopped hazelnuts (filberts). Not feeling feta? Use crumbled goat cheese (chèvre) or shredded sharp cheddar cheese instead.
