Green beans and big holiday dinners sort of go together, don’t they?
Green bean casserole is one of those traditional holiday must-serves – and a dish that is quite often loaded with heavy, soggy, goopy flavors that do little justice to the deliciously fresh and bright green bean flavors.
I love green beans – but I will admit the ubiquitous green bean casserole just isn’t really my thing. I love the rich, simple, and salty flavors you get from roasting green beans – and decided to up my green bean game this year with a deliciously slightly salty and sweet green bean almondine recipe that is so simple, it is bound to become your go-to star side dish at any big dinner.

Sheetpan Roasted Green Beans Almondine Recipe
- 1 large shallot or medium yellow onion, sliced into very thin half-rounds
- 1 lb frenched haricot verts
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp celtic sea salt
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- ¼ cup blanched almonds or thinly sliced almonds
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cover a sheetpan with foil or parchment paper.
- Add green beans to sheet pan, and cover with thinly sliced shallot or onion.
- Drizzle olive oil, garlic powder, and salt over green beans.
- Top with almonds, mix with hands.
- Roast in oven for 30 minutes. If green beans are still firm, add another 5-10 minutes - you want green beans to be lightly browned (mostly at the ends) and the onions/shallots to be soft and lightly browned.
- Serve immediately.
