What is Trader Joe's Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend?
I bought the wildly popular "Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend" at Trader Joe's when it first came out. I use it on just about everything from vegetables to stir-fries. The seasoning is a mixture of sesame seeds, sea salt, dried garlic and onion, and poppy seeds.
Many other stores and brands make a similar blend - McCormick, Simply Organic, Einstein Brothers, Aldi, Costco, & Wal-Mart for example. You can buy it just about anywhere. It is a low-cost ingredient with big rewards.
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 once you have a taste. This green bean recipe is only 3 ingredients.
- Fresh Green Beans
- Sesame Oil
- Everything but the Bagel Sesame Seasoning Blend
- Salt & Pepper - optional to taste
How to Oven Roast Green Beans
It only takes 5 minutes to prep & 20 minutes to cook this quick recipe. Here are the step-by-step easy instructions for making this oven-roasted green bean recipe.
- Prep the green beans
- Mix with other ingredients
- Roast in the oven
Prep the Green Beans
Begin by preheating the oven to 425°. While it preheats, prep the green beans. First, wash and dry your green beans. You do not want the green beans to be too wet or the other ingredients will not stick.
Next, trim & cut the green beans. I typically cut them to make them uniform in size. This is so the green beans (haricot verts) cook evenly when roasting them in the oven. Often times if they are very long, I will cut them in half so they are more bite-sized & easier to eat.
Place green beans on a baking sheet and toss with sesame oil. Sprinkle the seasoning blend on top and toss so they are coated evenly.
How Long to Cook Green Beans in the Oven
Roasting green beans in the oven is an easy way to cook them so they are tender on the inside & a bit crispy on the outside. It does not take long to cook them in the oven.
I like to do them on a high heat so that they get a bit charred & blistered. This adds flavor & texture that is so good. And it takes less than 30 minutes.
Roast the Green Beans at 425°
Place the green beans in the preheated oven. Bake for 20 minutes at 425°. When they are done, toss a bit more to evenly distribute the seasoning before serving.
Transfer to a serving platter or individual plates. They will taste gourmet & make any meal a special occasion. Enjoy.
These green beans store well in the refrigerator or freezer if you have leftovers. Place them in an air-tight container or Ziploc bag. Place them in the refrigerator and store them safely for up to 4 days. They are freezer-friendly and can be frozen for up to 30 days.
Substitutes & Variations
Here are some great recipe variations & ingredient substitutions that can be made. Add, omit, or use one of these alternatives for other delicious recipe ideas. These may help you enjoy this recipe even with dietary, health, or personal nutritional preferences.

- Spicy - stir in ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes for heat.
- Everything Bagel Seasoning - use my homemade seasoning for green beans instead.
These roasted green beans are vegan, gluten-free, keto, and low-carb. This recipe is only 2.9 net carbs per serving. It is a great vegetable side dish for anyone on a healthy diet.

Here are answers to some common questions. I hope you find what you need but if not, you are always welcome to send me a comment and I will get back to you.
This recipe is best when using fresh green beans. However, if they are not in season or you want a substitute you can use frozen or canned.
If using canned green beans, I recommend only cooking these for 5 minutes in the oven. If using frozen, I recommend defrosting them first to remove any moisture that may occur. Then cook in the oven for 5 minutes.
Adding more ingredients will work for this recipe. I recommend cutting the carrots and potatoes very small so they cook at the same rate as the green beans. Add additional oil and seasoning as needed.
If you love crispy green beans, you will love these air-fried. Try my recipe for Air Fryer Green Beans - simply substitute the seasoning blend for the Everything Bagel seasoning instead.

I'm not a big fan of green beans, but this looks like something that I could try and might even like. I think a trip to Trader Joe's is in my future.
Maybe give it a try on broccoli?
We LOVE this seasoning! We use it on so many things, breakfast sandwiches, baked potatoes, egg salad...the list goes on! And now I'll have to try it on green beans!
Yep, reason 1263588 on why this seasoning rocks!!!!
Angela Greven | Mean Green Chef says
Yep, I bet that is totally amazing! I LOVE everything bagels especially with a shmear of cream cheese, smoked lox, red onion, lemon and a sprinkle of capers. These green beans would be a great side dish for just about any meal, yum! 🙂
This sounds like it will be totally your sort of side dish.
Green beans are my favorites and I'm especially glad they're pretty Keto friendly. I'll be trying these!
Yes, these are keto-friendly and for me satisfy that "crunch" factor sometimes hard to get on a strict keto diet.
I have heard so much about this seasoning from other bloggers and friends! I really need to try this out! I love green beans, especially roasted. My husband not so much, I wonder if the seasoning might change his mind!
Yes, you really do need to try. No more waiting, go get it Brittany. If your husband is a convert, would love to hear about it.
Lisa Manderino says
What a great summer side dish!
Any time of year these would be great. When I first made them I thought it would be a great side dish at Thanksgiving.
I’m looking forward to trying these with the seasoning! I love roasted veggies. Pinned too.
Oh my gosh that looks delicious!
If you think they look delish, wait until you try them. Soooo simply good, it is almost silly.
I have heard of the "everything but the bagel" seasoning and thought, "that sounds awesome!" Green beans are a great idea for it!
Well, it sure makes these beans awesome. Try them soon and let me know what you think.
These look delicious
That seasoning is my favorite!
I know, right!?
Those green beans look yummy. I would have never thought to put seasoning with poppy seeds on green beans. Curious as to what that would taste like. Looks delicious!
It tastes great, all the items in the seasoning blend add some crunch and nuttiness.
Leigh Ann Newman says
These looks so good, probably because I'm a huge fan of fresh cut green beans. Thank you for showing a new way to prepare them that I think my family will love!
Great. You are welcome.
Kyndall Bennett says
That is an interesting name for some seasoning! Still, it looks like it would have just about anything tasting amazing!
Yes, you can put it on almost anything and it is good. Maybe not in a glass of orange juice, haha!
Kymberly Irwin says
This is now on my shopping list! Closest Trader Joe's is in St. Augustine, and I'll be there next week. I'm definitely picking this seasoning up. Thanks for a great recipe!
I'm a simple steam & eat green bean kind of gal, but this looks interesting!

I’ll have to try this seasoning! I usually just roast green beans with olive oil and sliced almonds. I need to shake things up!
Green beans almondine is totally my go-to also. If you like that, you will love this.
Haley Kelley says
Super excited to try these! Thanks for sharing!

Well, I haven't heard of the seasoning, but I don't live in a cave... just a crazy house with 7 kids. Guess who needs to run to Trader Joe's this afternoon. LOL. This looks yummy.
Haha, glad you are not cave-dwelling - but I hear you with 7 kids, wow! I am just glad you find time to read my site and get excited about new recipes and seasonings. WOuld love to hear how the family enjoys it, hoping for 8 yeah votes!

These sound very good I always make green beans the same old boring way. Will have to try to switch it up soon.
A simple way to switch it up, enjoy!
These look so yummy! And perfect for the summer!
They are "yummers" as a fellow bloggers often says!
