Frozen veggies are great money-savers and perfect for an easy veggie on the plate. You're going to love learning how to roast frozen green beans because you'll see them quickly become a top choice for your weeknight meals.
Frozen veggies have a special place in my heart and wallet. Finding already cut and washed produce at affordable prices and that won't spoil before I find time to cook them, yes, please!

Tips for cooking frozen green beans
Because these greens start off frozen, they do take a little longer than fresh ones would cook. This is because of the excess moisture and chill factor, but you'll notice that by the 15-minute mark they're actually looking good!
In fact, you could be done at that point if they seem heated through, but the extra 15 minutes gives them a little firmer bite for those of us that like a crisper green bean.
You can modify the seasonings to your own liking, but I like this simple and basic combination because it's perfect for pairing with practically anything.
