Asian Roasted Green Beans Recipe (Paleo, Whole30, Vegan) (1)

Growing up, my family and I would get Chinese food often. It was one of our favorite cuisines to get takeout from. One of the dishes we would always order was the Chinese style green beans coated in garlicky sweet-savory sauce. It was addicting, crunchy, and so fantastic with rice and a meat dish.

When I looked into authentic Chinese restaurant style green beans, they are mostly deep fried in oil and then covered in the delicious sauce. To make cooking easier for myself and save money o high-quality oil, I created this oven roasted green beans recipe and the result is just perfection!

Frequently Asked Questions

Are green beans paleo?

I’ve actually been asked several times, “Are green beans paleo?” While green beans technically fall under the legumes category, they actually don’t contain very much anti-nutrients like other beans (the reason why beans are avoided on a paleo diet). Green beans are very nutritious and are a healthy addition to a well-balanced paleo diet. I would say they are in the gray area, leaning more towards yes. They are definitely Whole30-compliant!

What can I serve these roasted green beans with?

You can serve these with so many dishes! If you are paleo and Whole30, they are wonderful over cauliflower rice. They also go well with Asian chicken thighs, fried rice, sweet and sour meatballs, fried eggs, and so many other dishes!

How long do the leftovers of these Whole30 and paleo roasted green beans last?

Kept in an airtight container the fridge, this dish should last for 3-5 days.
