Meatless Mondays – Happy Fries Edition

I saw this recipe in the Vegetarian Times and thought this would be an awesome after school snack or a great side to go with black bean burgers.  This would go great with any burgers actually.  If you have kids I would add potatoes to the mix as well so that the kids have something familiar if they are picky eaters.

Stave off cravings for crunchy, salty fried foods with these oven-fried vegetables.
  • 4 Tbs. grapeseed oil, divided, plus more for greasing baking sheets

  • 6 cloves garlic, minced, divided (2 Tbs.)
  • 1½ lb. carrots, peeled and cut into long, thin sticks
  • 1 lb. green beans, trimmed
1 | Preheat oven to 425°F. Lightly grease two baking sheets with oil. 2 | Stir together 2 Tbs. oil, 1 Tbs. rosemary, and 1 Tbs. garlic in large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Add carrots, and toss to coat well with oil and seasonings. Spread carrots in single layer on one prepared baking sheet. 3 | Combine remaining 2 Tbs. oil, 1 Tbs. rosemary, and 1 Tbs. garlic in same bowl, and season with salt and pepper, if desired. Add green beans, and toss to coat. Spread green beans on second prepared baking sheet. 4 | Roast green beans and carrots 20 to 30 minutes (depending on thickness), or until vegetables begin to turn deep brown in spots.
