Hoisin Roasted Green Beans

This isn't the most glamorous of dishes, but I assure you the flavor totally makes up for it. It's an excellent side dish for just about any Asian-inspired meal. What I love most is that it's so quick and easy, and frees up stove space. So while you've got your soup, stir-fry, or fried rice going on the stove, just pop these flavor-packed beauties in the oven and they take care of themselves! If they're done before your main dish, no problem - they're great served at room temp too. I especially love them paired with rice or noodles because they can mingle with the hoisin sauce and get all happy together. Mmm, mmm!

Vegan, gluten-free (with tamari and gf hoisin)
Adapted from Fresh Every Day cookbook
Makes about 5-6 side servings

1 1/2 lbs. green beans, stems removed
1/3 cup hoisin sauce
Juice of 1 orange
2 Tbsp. tamari (or soy sauce)
2 Tbsp. sesame oil or olive oil
Optional: sesame seeds for serving

Preheat oven to 400.
Stir all ingredients (except green beans) together in a large bowl.
Add green beans and toss to coat.
On a baking sheet with sides, spread the beans in an even layer.
Roast 15-20 minutes until soft.
Drizzle beans with the pan juices before serving if you wish.
Serve warm or at room temp.

*Note: you can try this sauce and method with other veggies too. Brussels sprouts, broccoli, mushrooms, etc. A vegetable medley would be awesome!

Have some leftover hoisin? Try these too!

Come join me on Instagram - I love to see what you guys are cooking up! :)


  1. Oh dear, they look amazing! Bakes Beans gets a whole new meaning looking at this recipe, haha

  2. We roast green beans all the time until they're crispy - my boys eat them like french fries! The hoisin would be amazing. Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Want to make with 1# beans and 1/2# mushrooms. Any thoughts on should mushrooms be left whole, halved, quartered? Thanks!

    1. You speak right to my heart wanting to add mushrooms! ;) I'd probably halve the mushrooms (or if they're pretty tiny, just leave whole). I hope you enjoy!! I definitely need to try this with mushrooms too!
