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!

If you’re like me you probably have a few bags of broccoli, corn, or mixed veggies chilling out in your freezer for those fast weeknight dinners when you don’t feel like doing much.

While these green beans might take a little longer to cook, the results speak for themselves. Crisp and juicy green beans that are packed with flavor. Yum!

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.
