Are you having trouble getting your kids to eat their veggies? Well with this recipe, that could all change. Natalie joins us today from Sprouts Cooking School with a simple and easy recipe!

Natalie has been with Sprouts for quite a few years. She started when she was in high school and in a culinary program and now is attending college majoring in hospitality management, while continuing on at Sprouts and teaching MemberChef® classes. She’s perfect to talk about kids who are more serious in the kitchen and want to grow in their culinary skills and how MemberChef® classes progress. 

Roasted Green Beans



Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Add prepared green beans to a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Make sure green beans are spread out in a single layer on the sheet pan. Roast green beans at 425 for 15-20 minutes until they are slightly softened and browned, stirring halfway through. Add garlic for last 2-3 min and cook until garlic is fragrant. When green beans are out of the oven add lemon juice. Taste for salt and lemon and add more as needed. Toss to coat evenly. Add parmesan cheese and toss one more time. Serve immediately.

Each month their curriculum focuses on a specific culinary skill. Students attend 4 classes per month and work to hone and master the particular culinary skill outlined that month. At the end of the four weeks, classes commence with a family dinner where students show their parents what they learned and teachers present students with a custom-designed pin to display on their exclusive black Sprouts Cooking School chef coat.
