Roasted Garlic Green Beans with Fried Sourdough

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 5 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed and coarsely chopped
  • 12 ounces (about 7 cups) day-old sourdough bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 and 1/2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed and chopped in half
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3-5 ounces goat cheese, crumbled


Melt the butter in a small bowl. Add 1/4 cup olive oil.
Stir in the chopped garlic and set aside for at least 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, chop the bread and set aside.
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick spray.
Trim the knobby ends off your green beans. (the part that might still have some stem attached.) The other tapered end is tender and doesn't need to be trimmed. Chop the beans in half or thirds, depending on how big they are. Rinse them off in a colander and pat dry with a paper towel.
Dump the green beans on the prepared pan.
Ue the colander to strain the butter and olive oil mixture into a 12-inch skillet. Add the garlic to the green beans on the pan.
Turn the heat to medium. When the butter is hot, add the cubed sourdough. Stir every couple minutes until the bread is crispy, about 10-12 minutes total.
Meanwhile, drizzle the pan of green beans and garlic with 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper. Use your hands to make sure all the beans are covered in oil.
Roast at 425 for 6 minutes. Stir the pan and return to the oven for another 6 minutes.
Check the green beans with a fork. If they are crisp tender, take them out, otherwise stir again and return to the oven for another 3 minutes. (Total roasting time should be 12-15 minutes.)
Transfer the green beans to a warm serving platter. Top with fried sourdough and sprinkle with goat cheese.
