These Roasted Garlic Green Beans with Pine Nuts make a great side dish. If you love garlic you will love these roasted green beans.
I made these Roasted Garlic Green Beans as a veggie side for Thanksgiving Dinner this year. I usually make my Honey Garlic Roasted Carrots but wanted to try something different this year.
Growing up my mom used to make green beans every week. As a kid there was no way I was going to eat them. The most I could stomach was cream corn.
Fast forward to today. These are not your mom’s green beans recipe. These beans are packed full of garlic flavor and the roasted pine nuts elevate the flavor of these green beans to a whole other level.
A word of caution before you jump into this recipe. Pine nuts can be pretty expensive. I’ve paid as much as $17 a pound for them. Thank God this recipe that does not need more than 1/2 cup.

The only challenging part with this recipe is making sure you don’t burn the butter, garlic or pine nuts when cooking them in the skillet. If the butter starts turning brown you’ve overcooked them.
