Summer is definitely here. You can tell when there are bushels and bushels of green beans at the market.

If you are looking for a quick way to cook green beans without adding a pot to the stove, consider roasting them. They get soft and a little bit sweet, and complement the spices and cheese very nicely. It’s really a great side dish for any meal, and the leftovers are good cold with a bit of red wine vinegar.
