The Best Way to Cook Frozen Vegetables
Roasting is the secret to cooking most frozen vegetables to perfection. By roasting them at high heat (over 400 degrees) and adding a drizzle of olive oil, along with simple spices like salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, you’ll create a recipe for success. You may already have tried roasted frozen cauliflower, corn, carrots, brussel sprouts, and broccoli, but have you tried roasted green beans? Spoiler alert: they are just as delicious!
How to Cook Frozen Green Beans in the Oven
To begin, preheat your oven to 450 degrees. The high heat is crucial for achieving the perfect texture when roasting anything that is frozen. And here’s a tip: there’s no need to thaw your frozen green beans before cooking. In fact, it’s best to keep them frozen to avoid ending up with a mushy texture.
Once your oven is preheated, take the frozen cut green beans out of the freezer and toss them with olive oil. Sprinkle in some salt, garlic powder, and onion powder, then give them another toss to coat evenly. Simple spices like these work well with any vegetables, and if you want a little kick, you can add a pinch of paprika.
Next, spread the green beans out on a baking sheet and roast them at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. After that, give them a stir and sprinkle some parmesan cheese over the top. Leave it as is for now, without stirring again. The small powdery fresh parmesan cheese found in the cheese section works best for this recipe, as it distributes evenly and adds a crispy texture to the green beans.
Continue roasting the green beans until they reach your desired texture, usually an additional 5-15 minutes depending on your oven and the type of sheet pan you’re using. The crispy parmesan bits will make the flavor incredible and leave you wanting more.
Reheating Cooked Frozen Green Beans
You’ll be delighted to know that these roasted frozen green beans can be reheated and still maintain their amazing flavor and texture. Simply pop any leftovers in the microwave until hot, and you’ll have a fantastic side dish once again.
