How to Make Roasted Garlic Green Beans or Asparagus & Sauce
- If using green beans, remove stems and halve. If using asparagus, trim off woody pieces and save for another use. Boil vegetables in salted water, 3 to five minutes. Drain and immediately drop into ice water. Let sit for another three minutes.
- Meanwhile, mixrowave coarsely chopped garlic and olive oil in 30 second intervals until fragrant. Be careful not to burn the garlic or have the oil too shallow. I do it in a small tea cup. Reserve 1 tablespoon of garlic infused oil and toss the remaining oil with the vegetables and a liberal amount of salt. Sprinkle garlic pieces over vegetables.
- Roast vegetables in 400 degree oven for thirty minutes. For dressing, try one of the following: 1.) Mix Dijon mustard, rosemary, and desired amount of pepper into remaining oil. Or 2.) mix garlic oil and a tablespoon of red wine vinegar in a dressing bottle. When vegetables are well roasted, drizzle one of the dressings over the vegetables and serve.
