Simple recipe for Roasted Balsamic Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes is taken to another level with quick Balsamic reduction and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese. Easy side dish that goes with any meal.
Roasted Balsamic Green Beans With Parmesan
Green beans are one of those vegetables that I didn’t grow up eating regularly. I distantly remember making Green Bean Soup or seeing them floating in Borscht, but other than that, back in the days green beans weren’t very popular.
Everything changed after I moved to the US and discovered new holidays such as Thanksgiving Day and the whole lot of dishes with fresh green beans.
Since then I’ve been cooking green beans in every possible way. I usually love to keep the recipe simple and stick to just a few ingredients. One of my favorite healthy recipes is 15-minute Green Beans which always comes in handy when I need the dinner on the table faster.
Today’s oven roasted Balsamic Green Beans is one of those recipes that require minimal work, only 5 ingredients and the result will totally blow your mind.
What sets this recipe apart from other roasted green beans dishes on the Internet is a final drizzle of a quick Balsamic glaze. It is my new favorite thing because it adds much more flavor to the beans than just plain Balsamic vinegar. And honestly, it is so easy to make it yourself.
My quick Balsamic reduction recipe
Add 1/2 cup of Balsamic vinegar in a small sauce pan. Cook on a medium low heat until it reduced by half and slightly thickens. It will take about 15 to 20 minutes.This amount should be enough to drizzle green beans all over.
And it’s just so delicious, with a mild fruity flavor, you’ll want to use it on other roasted veggies as well.
