Orange Infused Roasted Green Beans and Bell Peppers

Roasting these really brings out the sweetness in the green beans and the peppers. I like the orange twist on this recipe. Great flavor combo.


1 pound green beans, trimmed
1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil (this would be a great place to substitute a high heat cooking oil)
Zest of 1 orange
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper


1.Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Toss green beans, bell pepper and oil in a large bowl. Add orange zest, salt and crushed red pepper to taste; toss to combine. Spread on a large baking sheet. Roast the vegetables, turning once halfway through cooking, until tender and slightly wilted, about 15 minutes
