I first tasted roasted green beans in a Chinese restaurant and fell in love with the texture and flavor. This is my Americanized version and it's always a big hit at our holiday table. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
Many beans are grown here in Georgia, so we find lots of ways to serve them. This is one of my favorite side dishes for holiday meals. To make it even more special, substitute hazelnuts for the almonds.
THIS DISH was my grandmother's way of getting us young kids to eat our green vegetables. She was a wonderful cook and inspired me to get creative in my cooking.
Sunday dinner was always served at noon at her house, and everything on the table was homemade and delicious.

From Jackson, Mississippi, Lucy Banks writes, "I came across this recipe in a cookbook from France. Every time I serve it, people want to know what gives the green beans their unique flavor. It's the rosemary, of course!"
Being a teenager, my great-grandson Derek has developed his own tastes and doesn't always care for the same things I do. But this recipe is a tasty vegetable dish we both enjoy.—Ruby Williams, Bogalusa, Louisiana
