Gluten free, Vegan.

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

Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425°. Place beans in a baking dish and toss with olive oil, salt, lemon zest, and lemon juice until well coated. Roast for 20 minutes. Stir, increase heat to 450°, and roast for 10–15 minutes more.
  2. Remove beans from oven and transfer to a serving dish. Toss with fresh dill, currants, and freshly ground pepper. Top with pine nuts. Serve warm.
