Roasted Green Beans

What a wonderful, busy summer it has been! We have been road tripping, biking, cottaging, camping, partying and soaking up every single ray of sunshine a Canadian can squeeze into three, short months. Hence the reason for the blogless blog!

However, I don't want to lose sight of this recipe after making it for a couple cottage weekends. It was a big hit among friends and family. I hope you still find the last bit of summer enjoyable with this crowd-pleasing green bean dish.

Roasted Green Beans with Lemon, Pine Nuts and Parmesan

1.5 lbs. fresh green beans - the time is now! (ends trimmed)
2 teaspoons crushed garlice
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1.5 teaspoons grated lemon zest (zingy!)
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
Kosher salt and Black pepper

1/3 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. chopped flat parsley
An extra drizzle of olive oil 

In a large bowl, mix the olive oil, garlic, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Add the green beans to the bowl and toss to coat. Place the bean mixture in a grilling basket on the BBQ. Roast those beans until tender crisp and lightly browned.

Return to bowl and mix beans with lemon juice, pine nuts, parmesan cheese and flat parsley. Drizzle with a little bit more olive oil if needed. Serve hot!
