Roasted Green Beans and/or Okra

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

This is a basic recipe that is great for beans that are on the
more mature side. The higher heat and longer cooking gets
them tender and brings out their flavor. Add any spices you
might like, or mix the green beans with okra, which is also
great roasted. You want to get a nice browning around the
edges of the beans.

1 share fresh beans and/or okra
1 tablespoon olive oil
Drizzle balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste
Toss the beans with the oil, vinegar and salt and pepper.

Spread on a baking sheet and cook in the oven at 400 degrees
for about 15-20 minutes, stirring once or twice. Sprinkle with
more salt and pepper if needed, and serve warm.
