Roasted Green Beans with Walnuts and Cranberries

Since Thanksgiving is approaching soon, I'm trying out new side dishes. Do you always make the same dishes every year or do you change the menu? There are some traditional foods I always make but the sides plus desserts vary. I loved this recipe and it did have the great flavors of Thanksgiving. I will be adding it to my menu.
Roasted Green
1 1/2 lbs. green beans, trimmed
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/4 cup dried cranberries

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. On a baking sheet, toss the green beans with the olive oil and salt.
  3. Evenly spread the green beans onto the baking sheet.
  4. Sprinkle the walnuts on top of the green beans.
  5. cook the green beans in the oven for 6 minutes.
  6. Remove from the oven and carefully mix in the cranberries.
  7. Cook the green beans for another 6 minutes. 
  8. Serve immediately.
Recipe aspired from Real Simple.
