Ingredients and substitutions
Here are a few quick notes about the main ingredients in this recipe. You can see a complete list of ingredients and instructions in the recipe card below.
Green beans - Fresh green beans are best for this recipe.
Carrots - Rainbow or regular orange carrots can be used.
Olive oil - Use extra virgin olive oil if you have it. Avocado oil can be substituted.
Gluten-free soy sauce or tamari - Either of these sauces will add great flavor to our fresh vegetables and are gluten-free. Coconut aminos is another good substitution option.
Garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper - These simple seasonings are pantry staples and make for a very simple sauce!
Maple syrup - Just a touch of this unrefined sweetener is all you need. Honey can be swapped in if the roasted vegetables don't need to be vegan.
Sliced almonds - This adds a great crunch to the finished roasted veggies.
Before you start: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper.
Step 1: Wash, peel, and cut the carrots into sticks. Trim green beans.
Step 2: In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, tamari, maple syrup, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, and red chili flakes.
Step 3: Place the carrots and green beans in a large bowl. Drizzle the tamari sauce over the vegetables. Give them a good toss to ensure even coating.
Step 4: Spread the vegetables evenly on the large baking sheet. This will allow for the carrots to caramelize while they roast.
Roast in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the vegetables are tender. About 5 minutes before veggies are done, scatter sliced almonds on top and return to the oven.
- If your rimmed baking sheet doesn't allow all the veggies to lay in a single layer, then use a second baking sheet. This will allow the carrots to caramelize nicely and bring out their natural sugars.
- To get extra char on your roasted vegetables, place them under the broiler on high for 1-2 minutes.
- For quicker prep for busy weeknights or holiday dinners, buy pre-trimmed green beans. Some grocers like Trader Joe's sell pre-peeled carrots. Check the produce section of your local grocery store for these options.
How to store
Before storing, allow vegetables to cool to room temperature. Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
To reheat, heat portions in the microwave or place vegetables in an oven-safe dish, cover with foil, and place in a 350 degree Fahrenheit oven until warm.
Alternatively, heat a little bit of olive oil in a cast iron skillet, and heat the vegetables over medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes. This method will help crisp them back up.
