Ingredient tip: Look for prepackaged, trimmed green beans or thin, delicate haricot verts in the produce section of your market. Preparation tip: You can also cut long green beans into 1- or 2-inch chunks before roasting; just watch carefully so they don't overcook.

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon lemon zest
