Helpful Tips & Tricks

Cut the potatoes evenly. Make sure that when you are cubing the potatoes, they are of equal size. This is to avoid uneven cooking, with some smaller pieces overdone while other larger ones are still hard. So, make sure the cubes are uniform in size.

Nip the ends of the green beans. Whenever you work with fresh green beans, you will need to pinch or cut off the tip and tail of the bean. Using a knife gives the beans a more consistent shape, so I suggest doing that.

Season to taste. This recipe is delicious, but if you have a favorite seasoning, go ahead and add some! And you can adjust the salt to your personal preference.

Use a non-stick baking sheet. This is the best pan to use for roasting these Green Beans and Potatoes because it will prevent the vegetables from sticking while cooking.
