Let the broiler do all the work, and enjoy the reward: crisp-tender green beans with a kiss of smoky char, juicy tomatoes, and a mellow roasted garlic sauce. Look for slender haricots verts (French green beans) in the prepared produce section of the supermarket. You can also use regular green beans, broiling a minute or two longer as needed. Follow the advice of our Test Kitchen experts and pile the leftovers onto a sandwich, or create a turkey Niçoise platter with the green beans, sliced roasted turkey, roasted potatoes, sliced olives, and a quick vinaigrette.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler with oven rack in top position.

Step 2

Combine 1 tablespoon oil, butter, salt, pepper, and haricots verts in a bowl; spread in a single layer on a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Add garlic cloves to pan. Broil 5 minutes or until beans just begin to char. Add tomatoes and shallot; broil 5 minutes or until tomatoes start to break down.

Step 3

Remove skins from garlic cloves; discard. Place garlic pulp in a bowl; mash. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon oil and vinegar. Drizzle garlic mixture over green bean mixture; toss.
