Oven Roasted Green Beans with Harissa

Oven Roasted Green Beans with Harissa

I could live on Moroccan food alone. The combination of flavors, the spices and the freshness of the food is so tantalizing. Oven Roasted Green Beans with Harissa are literally thrown together, baked for about 20 minutes and you have a delicious side dish ready to devour. You may have noticed the number of oven roasted vegetable dish’s on my blog and the thing I love about them is they can all be cooked at once in the oven. This is yet another dish that was inspired by my frequent visits to Moorish Blue, a wonderful Moroccan restaurant not far from where I live.

Serving Suggestions

Try this dish with some of the other Moroccan inspired dishes that I have shared recently such Oven Roasted Moroccan Cauliflower and Oven Roasted Moroccan Pumpkin, as they all really compliment each other. This dish would be perfect with  Low Carb Slow Cooker Syrian Lamb and Eggplant Tagine. It would also be amazing with my low carb version of Karen Martini’s Syrian Chicken, albeit Low Carb Syrian Chicken.

Making Your Own Harissa and Labneh

Cook these for between 15- 20 minutes, depending on whether you like your beans well done or a little more crisp. Don’t forget that you can also easily make your own Harissa to use in this recipe as well. I have just posted the recipe for Harissa on the blog so why don’t you try to make your own. Try serving this dish with Labneh on top, or smeared on the plate as a garnish. If you’re interested in making your own Labneh, check out this recipe as well. It’s really simple to make and so much cheaper than buying it. All you need is some natural yogurt or Greek yogurt, and time for it to drain. Trust me, you are never going to buy Harissa or Labneh again once you try these recipes. They are both really simple and cheap to make.

I hope you love this recipe as much as I do.
Happy cooking!
