Oven Roasted French Beans and Potatoes with Garlic Chilli Flakes

Oven Roasted French Beans and Potatoes with Garlic and Chilli Flakes


This is another Roasted Vegetable Dish…Prepared using French Beans,Potatoes,Garlic,Chilli Flakes and Olive Oil..This is simple and baking is fun…ofcourse Baking is Roasting ..Roasting is Baking…Because We use the Same Oven,Same Settings,Same Dishes or Trays but only thing is while baking we do not stir or disturb the dish whereas While Roasting We can stir or turn the things that are Roasted and Browned…..

Thing needed for this dish are

French Beans – As many as you wish…I used approx 500gms

Potatoes 2-3 med peeled and washed.

Garlic pods – 2 big grated

Red Chilli flakes – 1 tsp

Black Pepper powder – 1/2 tsp freshly ground

Salt to taste

Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 2 tbsps

Prepare vegetables by cutting beans into 2” pieces diagonally or as you like after removing edges and washing and cut potatoes into wedges.

Place them in the Baking Tray or You can use Pyrex Glass Dish.

Veggies in the Roasting Tray.


Now sprinkle chilli flakes and grated garlic over the veggies.

Pre-heat oven to 240 degrees C and place the Tray in the Bottom rack of the oven and Bake (Roast)..Stir every 5-10 mins till browned on all sides Take care  while stirring as the oven is hot Use the mitten and long spatula. Sprinkle pepper powder just before you remove out of the oven and stir.


Roasted Veggies


Oven Roasted Vegetables

Oven roasted Vegetables

I had a few colourful Bell peppers,Eggplant and tender Pink Radishes so…Thought of preparing this easy and enjoyable tasty colourful dish.I feel there  is no rule here for this dish to use these veggies only…you can try any combinations you wish…like

1.Beets,Turnips,Carrots,Potatoes or Parsnips

2.Asparagus,Green Beans,Broccoli,Brussels sprouts,Cauliflower or Cabbage….

3.Sweet Potato and Butternut Squash…And so on….in any desired combinations…but keep in mind the soft veggies cook in less time and hard veggies take longer time..so choose your veggie combinations accordingly to get everything right and evenly cooked.

Roasted Vegetables make a great  accompaniment to main dish or meat dish.Roasting brings out the natural flavours of the veggies.They are appealing to the eye ,to touch or taste…They turn brown on edges and crisp in texture…Just by using olive oil or vegetable oil ,salt,pepper and fresh herbs like (Cilantro or mint or thyme or Basil or Oregano or Dill or Rosemary…..so on) as you wish fresh or dried…Try and Experiment.

Things I used for this Dish are

Diced Red,Yellow,Green,Orange Bell Peppers,Tender Pink Radishes, Eggplant,and Red Onion.

Eggplant – 1 med Wash cut into cubes and place in salted water.

Red,yellow,green and orange bell peppers – 1 each Remove stem,deseed and cut into 1″ dices

Onion – 1 large chop into large chunks and seperate petals.

Pink radishes – 10 remove edges and cut into quarters.

For Dressing

Olive oil – 2 tbsps

Salt and Pepper for taste

Fresh Herbs – I used Cilantro/Coriander

Mix all the four ingredients  in a small bowl and keep.


After preparing the vegetables place them all together in a large bowl of salt water for 15 mins to hydrate them so that they don’t turn so dry when roasted.

Now drain and Place in the roasting pan or baking tray in a single layer.

Veggies in the tray and Dressing

Pour the dressing over and toss well.

Well tossed veggies in the dressing

Pre-heat oven to 240 degrees c and place the tray in the lower rack to roast in the oven.

Tray in the Oven

Turn them once in 5-10 mins to get cooked and browned all over. it takes about 20-30 mins to finish.

Ready to Serve Roasted Vegetables

If using root veggies it may take another 10 more mins.

Serve with cilantro garlic mayo and pita bread for a great dinner.

Roasting and Grilling is not limited to one region or area but everybody enjoys this by preparing on the open charcoal grill in summers and roasting in the ovens indoor in winters.
