Roasted Garbanzo Beans with Pistachios
Drain and rinse a can of garbanzo beans (chickpeas), toss with a little olive oil, roast at 425 for 15 minutes or until browned and pretty crunchy. Pour into a small bowl with some shelled pistachios and sprinkle with coarse salt.
Roasted French Green Beans
Empty the contents of a bag of Haricot Vert (French green beans, the thin ones--they sell them pre-cut & washed at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Costco) onto a baking sheet, toss with a little olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast for 12-15 minutes at 425. They are supposed to get brown on the ends and wilt...if you want them crunchy, roast for only 3-4 minutes. For a fun presentation, put them in a glass like this so people can just pull out a bean at a time.
