I recently found a yummy-looking slow-roasted green bean recipe from Bon Appetit that I'd like to try for Thanksgiving. Trouble is, it calls for the beans to be roasted in the oven for a full hour at 400. I only have one oven available, and the turkey will of course be in there at a much lower temperature for most of the day, and it only rests for about 1/2 hour so that doesn't leave enough time to get the beans done once the turkey's out. Is it possible to par-roast the beans for a half-hour before I put the turkey in, or will sitting out of the oven in between cooking periods make them all shrivelly and sad?
You deserve a cookie.
