Balsamic Roasted Carrots & Green Beans

Happy Friday loves! What a week. I made an amazing  side dish for a family dinner the other night keeping it simple. And honestly I was too lazy to go to the store so this was created by what was already in the fridge. It complimented salmon perfectly.


  • 1 lb. carrots, sliced;
  • 1 lb. green beans, trimmed;
  • 2 garlic cloves minced;
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil;
  • 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar;
  • Fresh parsley;
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper:


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  2. Toss the carrots and green beans in a bowl with olive oil, garlic and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Transfer to a roasting pan and place in the preheated oven.
  4. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes.
  5. Drizzle vegetables with balsamic vinegar and roast another 3 to 5 minutes.
  6. Serve sprinkled with fresh parsley.

Simple, healthy, and the balsamic just adds something different!
