Greek Roasted Green Beans

Use fresh or frozen beans for this. If using frozen ones, thaw them first and drain off the excess water. In summer, make this with fresh beans and fresh herbs.

1 lb green beans, stemmed and cut into 2-inch lengths
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp dried lemon zest (or fresh if you have it)
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp dried dill
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Toss the green beans with the other ingredients. Place in a roasting pan and roast for 20-25 minutes. Serve hot.

Serves about 4.
