  • 1¼ pounds trimmed fresh green beans (about 8 cups)
  • 2 medium shallots, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 ounce Parmesan cheese, finely grated (about 1/4 cup)


Sweet balsamic vinegar and nutty Parmesan cheese complement roasted green beans and shallots in this easy and healthy side dish. Roasting the green beans gives them a sweet, caramelized flavor while they still retain some bite. Serve with chicken, fish, pork—you name it.


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  2. Combine green beans, shallots, oil, salt and pepper on the prepared pan; toss to coat well. Roast until tender, 15 to 18 minutes. Drizzle evenly with vinegar; sprinkle with Parmesan.
