Amazing Roasted Green Beans with Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning

Oven-roasted green beans are simple to make and are a staple in our home. This recent quick recipe I tried out adds lots of flavors easily with a combination of toasted sesame, garlic, and other seasonings. These green beans are salty, crunchy, and the everything bagel seasoning adds a bit of nuttiness thanks to the sesame and poppy seeds. Plus roasting the string beans is a great way to bring out a rich flavor and keep them crunchy.

You need these crispy baked green beans, trust me. This is a new favorite in our home and this will likely become part of your side dish rotation I am confident as well. Kids will also love this easy green bean recipe and enjoy eating their vegetables.

What is Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend?

During a recent trip to Trader Joes, I bought the wildly popular “Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend”. If you have not heard of it or used this seasoning yet, I am pretty sure you have been living in a cave.  It seems to be on literally everything lately and it is sometimes sold out in my local store.  The seasoning is a mixture of sesame seeds, sea salt, dried garlic and onion, and poppy seeds.

It seemed like an easy but mouthwatering idea to roast green beans, add some sesame oil, and then sprinkle the seasoning on top to have a great vegetable side dish.  After all, my family loves the dry roasted string beans with sesame oil that we always order at our local Chinese restaurant.  Miley piles these on her plate every time we eat at this restaurant and half her meal often consists of these string beans.  Why not try to make something similar at home?

This is so simple it is almost embarrassing to write this up formally and try to convince you to try it. It really speaks for itself and in a few minutes, you can enjoy these too. It is only 3 ingredients; sesame oil, green beans, and the Everything But the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend.

10 Minutes Prep and 20 Minutes to Cook = Green Bean Heaven!

First, wash and trim your green beans to remove the ends. I typically cut them to make them as much a uniform size as possible. This is so the green beans (haricot vert) cook evenly when roasting them in the oven. Often times if they are very long, I will cut them in half so they are easier for the little mouths in my home.

Place green beans on a baking sheet and toss with sesame oil. Sprinkle the seasoning blend on top and they are ready to be roasted in the oven.

If you do not have sesame oil, here is great information on my recommendations for SUBSTITUTES FOR SESAME OIL.

Bake for 20 minutes at 425 degrees.    When they are done, toss a bit more to evenly distribute the garlic, sesame seasoning before serving.  Enjoy.
