Cook Time15 minutes
Total Time20 minutes
Course: Side Dish, Snack
Keyword: asparagus, broccoli, green beans, Parmesan, zucchini
Servings: 2 people


  • baking sheet
  • paring knife (possibly)
  • cutting board (possibly)
  • aluminum foil (optional)


  • a bunch green vegetables (green beans, zucchini, broccoli, asparagus, etc)
  • a little oil (olive is nice; spray, if possible)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • some garlic powder (optional)
  • some shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 425°F
  • Optionally, line the baking sheet with the aluminium foil, to make cleanup easier
  • Spray, brush, or drizzle the bottom with oil
  • If the vegetable needs it, do the prep work (trim green beans of the tops and tails, slice zucchini into coins, cut the woody ends off asparagus) on the cutting board
  • Fill the sheet with as many vegetables as you want
  • Spray, brush, or drizzle the vegetables with oil
  • Sprinkle with salt to taste, but probably cover them fairly well
  • Sprinkle with pepper to taste, maybe a little less than the salt
  • Optionally, sprinkle with garlic powder to taste, about the same as the pepper
  • Toss the veggies so they get evenly coated with the spices
  • Arrange them into a single layer
  • Put the sheet in the lower part of the oven
  • Bake for about 10 minutes, until they're as tender as you'd like
  • For green beans and asparagus, shake the sheet so they roll over and put them in for another 5 minutes
  • Remove from oven
  • Optionally, sprinkle with the grated Parmesan
