This quick & easy recipe is a great option if you’re looking for a delicious and healthy side dish! I recently bought a few different popcorn seasonings and thought to try adding the butter flavor to vegetables. Turns out to taste really good!
Ingredients You’ll Need:
- Frozen or fresh green beans
- Mrs. Dash – Original Blend
- Garlic Powder
- Salt & Pepper
- Kernel Seasons – Butter Seasoning
- Canola Oil Cooking Spray
Preheat oven to 400°F. Then cover a cookie sheet with tin foil [helps make cleanup a bit easier]. Spray a coating of cooking oil on the pan. You could drizzle real oil on the pan but in an effort to keep calories low, I opted for Canola Oil cooking spray.
Add green beans to the cookie sheet. I didn’t worry about making sure there was 1 even layer – I just put the amount I wanted to cook on the sheet and then spread out what I could. Then coat all the green beans with cooking spray to help the seasonings attach to the green beans and help the green beans roast when in the oven.
Add seasonings [salt, pepper, butter seasoning, garlic powder, Mrs. Dash] to green beans. Amount depends on your personal preference. I personally did a pinch of salt and a generous amount of pepper, butter seasoning, garlic powder and Mrs. Dash.
Put cookie sheet in oven for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes, take a spatula and flip green beans over. Cook for an additional 10-15 minutes or until green beans are roasted and look shriveled and a bit brown. Every oven is going to be different so keep an eye on how fast your’s cooks – you may need to add/subtract cooking time. My green beans were soft but did have a bit of burntness to them. So good!
I was surprised at how yummy the “popcorn seasoning” made my green beans! Love finding new ways to change up what could be a boring side! The container says that this seasoning would be good on potatoes, pasta, eggs, vegetables and rice! I plan on trying it out and seeing how it tastes on other foods 🙂
Here’s the back of the seasoning container for anyone who is interested in seeing the ingredients &/or nutrition facts. The front also states that there is nothing artificial.
