Sweet Sriracha Green Beans are the perfect easy recipe for your vegetable side dish. Slightly spicy and sweetened with a touch of honey, you won't be able to get enough!
I love love love a convenient meal. Love. With a billion kids and four billion activities going on at any given time, simple meals are more than important - they are a necessity. So, I am unashamed to tell you that I use quick and easy meal solutions sometimes. Yes, even the food blogger needs help in the kitchen! When we rely on a quickie meal though, I like to add our own touches. A fresh salad, for example. Grilled corn, maybe. Or today, Sweet Sriracha Roasted Green Beans!
These Green Beans are tossed with a little honey and sriracha sauce, then roasted at a high temperature with slivered almonds. They're a subtle, but delicious flavor with a bit of kick at the end. Perfect for any occasion, but especially great on days when you don't have much time for major prep. I use an equal amount of sweet and heat on mine, but if your tastes are different, it's simple to adjust the recipe!
Sriracha is a chili garlic sauce with delicious complex flavors - I had the idea to mix it with honey when we I ate teriyaki chicken with my mother-in-law and she used it to spice up her dish. One bite and I was hooked on the sweet and spicy combo!
I always keep a bag of slivered almonds in the freezer for adding to dishes. They're so good in everything from ice cream to casseroles, and of course with veggies. While the green beans roasted in the oven, I started our Creamy Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo. All said and done, this entire meal took thirty minutes from start to finish. I think the most time intensive part was snapping the ends off our fresh green beans!

Our green beans were done just as the main course was finishing up, so we were able to enjoy everything together and warm at the same time. I'm always so happy when that happens because it seems like there's always one thing that takes longer and then you're stuck decided whether to wait on it and let some of the dinner get cold, or start without and risk forgetting about it! Hah!
