I found that homemade garlic oil is awesome in both asparagus and green beans. You can have them roasted or throw them on the grill for a delicious char. I was throwing the garlic in with the veggies until I saw another recipe that stirred in Dijon mustard to make a sauce. Thus a star was born.

The Asparagus and Green Beans are both fantastic grilled or broiled, too!

How to Make Roasted Garlic Green Beans or Asparagus & Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
