For everyone who steers clear of the classic green bean casserole, this healthy side is a way to sneak in the Thanksgiving vegetable without reaching for a can of mushroom soup.
1 1/2 lb. green beans, trimmed
1 medium red onion, sliced into rings
8 oz. cremini mushrooms, sliced
8 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1 c. fresh breadcrumbs or panko
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 c. grated Parmesan (1/2 oz.)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. On two rimmed baking sheets, arrange green beans, onions, and mushrooms. Toss each with 3 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until tender and deeply browned, 30 to 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a medium skillet over medium heat, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Add breadcrumbs and oregano and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, 3 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in Parmesan, and zest of lemon.
Squeeze lemon juice over roasted vegetables and top with Parmesan breadcrumbs.
