Oven Roasted Haricot Vert (green beans)

Another recipe from Eleanor’s cooking demo at Alumapalooza 2011:
Oven Roasted Haricot Vert
1 pound (or more) fresh haricot vert (long, thin, green beans)
extra virgin olive oil
kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 400f.
Wash & pat dry the green beans. Discard the undesirable ones.
Spread out the remaining green beans in a single layer on a cookie sheet with sides.
Drizzle some olive oil over the beans and then sprinkle them with some salt.
(You can give them a toss in the oil & salt but it’s not necessary.)
Place them in the oven and roast them for about 15 minutes.
Check them for doneness. If you prefer your beans softer and with a more “oven fried” texture, put them back in the oven for five minutes more. (Check them again & see if they’re done.)
When desired doneness is achieved, remove them from the oven & plate them.
