Tossed in toasted panko breadcrumbs, almonds, sunflower seeds, lemon and crumbled feta, these roasted green beans are a super easy side dish.


  • For almond breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • For green beans
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Stir together the panko breadcrumbs, almonds, sunflower seeds, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a glass pie plate. Toast in the oven until lightly golden, about 12-15 minutes. Carefully stir in the lemon zest. Set aside.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F.
  4. Toss the green beans with 1 tablespoon olive oil, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper on a sheet pan. Spread into a single layer. Roast for 12-15 until the green beans are blistered. (Make sure not to overcook the green beans.)
  5. Toss the green beans with the almond breadcrumbs. Transfer to a serving dish and top with crumbled feta.


You can substitute the almonds with pine nuts.

If you want a more subtle cheese, then sprinkle on shaved Parmesan instead.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge up to 3 days. Eat them cold in a salad or warm them on a sheet pan in a 350-degree F oven.
