Balsamic-Roasted Green Beans with Parmesan

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. These green beans are also a wonderful addition to your Thanksgiving meal.

  • 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 ¼ cup)

Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. 

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.
