roasted green beans and tomatoes

When it comes to cooking, I've noticed there's a theme with me... easy & healthy! I had this super yummy dish for lunch yesterday and it was great. The green beans were bought from a local farmers market and the cherry tomatoes are from my in-laws garden. I decided to throw mine over some fried rice, however, I can imagine it going wonderfully with some mashed potatoes and grilled fish. Or if you're a vegetarian like me, you could easily add some grilled tofu to this side dish. Here's one of my absolute favourite recipes: Hoisin Grilled Tofu Recipe. Yum!

You'll need:

1 pound trimmed green beans
1 pint cherry tomatoes
Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Salt + freshly ground black pepper

Heat your oven to 450 degrees. You'll want to place an empty baking sheet on an upper rack. Coat beans and tomatoes with olive oil and season with salt & pepper. Now add your veggies to the hot baking sheet and let roast for about 20 - 25 minutes until caramelized. Serve as a side.
