Remember that time I roasted frozen vegetables?

OOPS…I did it again.

Not that I’m mad about it or anything. I’ve raved about Costco before, and I’m not stopping now. Costco carries an amazing selection of frozen organic vegetables and they.are.CHEAP. Like, five pounds of frozen organic petite green beans for $6.50 cheap. Soooo saving money? Check!

Now let’s talk about how roasting frozen vegetables saves you time. You don’t have to rinse frozen vegetables. You also don’t have to cut the ends off of them, or sort through to find duds. It’s already done for you! You can literally take these out of the freezer, toss them in oil and throw them in the oven. Okay, so you might not literally throw them in the oven. You get the idea.

I can’t take 100% credibility for this recipe. I got the idea from my sister-in-law over Christmas last year. It only took me 6 months to actually try it…and I’m sad it took me that long. Roasted green beans will change the way you look at green beans for the rest of your life. Not kidding! Changing the way you prepare foods is the best way to prevent boredom with a healthy diet. This recipe doesn’t take much skill either, so its the perfect way for all you newbie cooks to impress your favorite people at your next dinner party!
