ingredients needed to make baked green beans potatoes
  • Fresh green beans. Fresh string beans are the best, but if you have frozen beans on hand, they will work fine.
  • Potatoes. Yukon gold potatoes are considered the best for roasting, but I personally prefer little baby potatoes. However, any potatoes will work in this recipe, including red potatoes, russet potatoes, or Dutch creams.
  • Extra virgin olive oil.
  • Lemon juice. Fresh is the best.
  • Spices: garlic powder, sweet paprika, sea salt, and black pepper.
