Roasted green beans topped with crispy pumpkin seeds. It’s the perfect balance of sweet and salty and are extremely easy to prepare and cook.

Spice up your roasted green beans with a crunchy, sweet and salty topping. These pumpkin seeds cooked with olive oil, maple syrup, coriander, cinnamon, and salt will amaze your tastebuds.

The reason why I opted for shallots opposed to onions with the roasted green beans is because…CRISPY. Shallots get so crispy when tossed with olive oil and roasted at the right temperature. A crunchy element in every bite.
