One of my new favorite vegetable side dish recipes is this Balsamic Garlic Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms dish. It’s quick and easy (you know I love those kinds of recipes!) and is very flavorful.The sweet and tangy balsamic vinegar adds such a nice taste and light caramelization to the perfectly roasted veggies. I seriously could not get enough of it. Serve this healthy side dish with your favorite protein for a complete meal!
- 1 lb green beans trimmed
- 8 oz mushrooms sliced
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 6 garlic cloves minced
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and mist with non-fat cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar and garlic. Add in the veggies and toss to coat. Spread out the green beans and mushrooms evenly onto the pan, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place in oven and roast for about 20 minutes, or until veggies are well browned.
**An important bit of info to note...when calculating the nutritional data, I did NOT include the green beans, mushrooms or garlic, since those are 0 Points. This is per Weight Watchers instructions. Only the non fruit or vegetables are counted towards the nutritional data and Smart Points value.
