  • 2 Roast garlic 35 to 40 minutes or until garlic is soft and golden brown. Cool 10 minutes or until cool enough to handle.

  • 4 Place green beans in ungreased 15x10x1-inch pan. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over beans; toss lightly to coat. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt.

Expert Tips

A garlic press acts as a mini ricer and is perfect for obtaining a smooth texture from the roasted cloves.

Make the Roasted Garlic Aioli in advance to allow the flavors to blend. Try providing an additional choice for dipping. Wasabi Mayo is easy to make and a perfect complement to Roasted Green Beans.
