I never imagined when I made Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic, and Parmesan back in 2009 that they would end up being such an enormous hit on the blog. But this recipe has been viewed and pinned literally millions of times. The original photo went crazy on Pinterest, but I wasn’t such a fan of it, so a few years ago I decided this post must have better photos!

I love this recipe and I like to use the lovely thin French beans from Costco. They’re a little pricey, so Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic, and Parmesan are something to make for a special dinner at my house.

I do think roasting vegetables is the greatest trick to add to your cooking repertoire, because nothing concentrates and sweetens the flavor of vegetables more than roasting, and these beans are one of the all-time most popular Thanksgiving Recipes on Kalyn’s Kitchen. If mushrooms are not a go in your family, instead of roasted green beans with mushrooms I recommend you make Garlic Roasted Green Beans with Shallots and Almonds; those beans are amazing as well!

How to Make Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic, and Parmesan:

(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)

  1. Cut mushrooms into slices that are about 1/2 inch thick. It’s fairly important that mushrooms are the same thickness so they’ll all cook the same.
  2. Trim both ends of the beans and cut them in half.
  3. I put the beans and mushrooms into a Ziploc bag, then whisked together the olive oil and balsamic vinegar, poured it into the bag, and squeezed the veggies around until they were all coated with the oil-balsamic mixture.
  4. Spray a baking sheet lightly with non-stick spray and spread out the beans and mushrooms. Bake in a preheated 450f/230C oven for 20-30 minutes, starting to check then after 20 minutes.
  5. When the veggies are done to your liking, put on a platter, season with salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste, sprinkle with finely grated Parmesan, and devour!

Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic, and Parmesan

Yield 6 servings
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes

Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms, Balsamic, and Parmesan are one of the most popular Thanksgiving side dishes on this blog!


  • 8 oz. mushrooms
  • 1 lb. fresh green beans, preferably thin French style beans
  • 1 1/2 T olive oil
  • 1 T balsamic vinegar
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 T finely grated parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450F/230C. Lightly spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. Wash mushrooms and let drain (or spin dry in salad spinner, which is what I did.)
  3. Cut mushrooms into slices 1/2 inch thick when they are dry.
  4. While mushrooms are drying, trim ends of beans and cut beans in half so you have bite-sized pieces. (An easy way to trim them is to gather a small handful of beans, stand them up on cutting board, holding loosely so they will fall down and have ends ends aligned, then trim. Repeat with other end.)
  5. Put cut beans and mushrooms into a Ziploc bag or plastic bowl.
  6. Whisk together olive oil and balsamic vinegar and pour over, then squeeze bag or stir so all the beans and mushrooms are lightly coated with the mixture.
  7. Arrange on large cookie sheet, spreading them out well so beans and mushrooms are not crowded.
  8. Roast 20-30 minutes, starting to check for doneness after 20 minutes.
  9. Cook until beans are tender-crisp, mushrooms are cooked, and all liquid on the pan from mushrooms has evaporated.
  10. Season beans to taste with salt and fresh ground pepper, then sprinkle with finely grated Parmesan. Serve hot.


I used brown Cremini mushrooms, but any mushrooms will work for this recipe.

  1. Roasted green beans are so good, and you’ve created a great recipe here, Kalyn. Do you grow your own green beans during the summer? They are super easy to grow – even I can do it in my foggy, cool climate!

  2. I adore those Costco beans, and also similarly affordable haricots vert from Trader Joe’s. This mushroom and bean dish is a perfect foil for a bit of balsamic and parmesan, too.

  3. What a great dish! I think roasting vegetables give them such great flavor. Never thought to try it with green beans. This is definitely one to try.

  4. These look wonderful. I love green beans, especially the french ones. Mushrooms are a favorite of mine too. Will have to try this! Thanks!

  5. I love roasted vegetables, but have never roasted green beans. Kalyn, this sounds great – I will try it soon.

  6. This looks delicious, I can’t wait to try it out for myself.

  7. Roasted veggies are a delightful comfort for cold winters. What a lovely combination of flavours.

  8. After your roasted broccoli, I’ve been roasting like mad. I love that I can count on you for great vegetable dishes. This one is going to be made for sure!

  9. I am a big fan of roasting vegetables since I get home late and want to throw something together quickly. I’ve put together the same recipe for Broccoli rabe and asparagus – they’re great alone or as a side dish. Totally satisfying!

  10. Sam I think garlic and thinly sliced onions sounds great in this!

  11. I have been making a similar recipe for about 15 years. It even became a family favourite every Christmas back in the UK. In my recipe I use whole garlic cloves and thin onion slices in place of the mushrooms and no cheese at the end. Also I don't use a bag – just dribbled the oil & balsalmic on and then squoosh it around with my hands.

  12. Glad people like the sound of this. Barbara, I’m going to write about Utah food blogs on Friday, mentioning some who got left out of the article. She did do a good job though, so many blogs!

    Nancy, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the FoodSaver. I keep meaning to write about it for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, but the one I have is so old it doesn’t look anything like they look now. Amazon has been having them on sale for a few weeks now, so maybe I should write about it!

  13. This dish looks so great!

    How do you like your Foodsaver?

  14. This is all I need for dinner! It looks oh so good!

  15. These look great Kalyn!

    Thank you 😉

  16. i love roasted beans, so the addition of mushrooms and balsamic is something i’ll have to do!!

  17. Kalyn, first off…I see you’re #1 in the Topblog List…kudos.

    Secondly, I’m doing steak 2nite and you’ve given me some ideas for beans and mushrooms!

  18. Green beans and mushrooms – wonderful together. Roasting just brings out the best in almost every veggie there is.

  19. Nice article in the Tribune today! I too love the green beans from Costco. I’ll have to give this recipe a try!

  20. I like anything with mushrooms so I would love this dish. Looks yummy!
