I’m updating the photos for this recipe for Garlic-Roasted Green Beans Recipe with Shallots and Almonds to see if I can entice you to add it to your Thanksgiving menu, and these beans are so, so good! It’s the crispy roasted shallots that really put this over the top, and those roasted shallots reminded me of the flavor of the fried onions that sometimes go on the top of green bean casserole (but a lot healthier!) And shallots can be pricey, but you’re not using a huge amount here, or use slivers of red onion if you can’t find shallots where you live.
I used the thin French Beans from Costco, which are perfect for a holiday like Thanksgiving because they cook quickly! And it’s probably not hard to tell that I think roasted vegetables are great for Thanksgiving. Here’s my thinking, the oven is already hot and when you take the turkey out to carve it and make the gravy, you have just enough oven time to cook the rolls and roast some kind of delicious veggie at the same time. Plus, most roasted vegetables are very forgiving as far as cooking time and temperature, so no need to fuss, and roasting concentrates the flavor of vegetables in a way that no other cooking method can match.
And if you already have a plan for vegetables for Thanksgiving, I am urging you to try these another time for a special dinner! I promise anyone who has enjoyed my mega-popular Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic, and Parmesan is going to love this recipe just as much!
