Roasted Green Beans with Goat Cheese

I don't know about you, but after all the great eating through the holidays, I am ready to get back to "real" food - and lots of fruits and veggies. So today I bring you a wonderful way to prepare green beans. Green beans are one of my favorite veggies, and they rocket to the top when roasted with some garlic and topped with goat cheese. It is a wonderful combination! I ate this for dinner one night, but it's also delightful paired with any meat.

Start by trimming the green beans and then laying them out on a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil

then sprinkle with garlic

and season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 15 minutes until beans are tender, then transfer them to a serving platter and sprinkle with lemon juice and lemon zest. Crumble the goat cheese over the beans.

Serve immediately and enjoy your veggies!
