How to Store These Garlic Roasted Green Beans for Later
You can either keep your garlic roasted green beans in the fridge for up to 5 days or you can freeze them for up to 12 months.

3 Tips For Keeping Your Green Veggies Nice and Crisp
Wondering about the best way to keep your healthy greens so that they stay nice and crispy? Follow these 3 simple tips:
- Clean before storing. Before storing your greens in the fridge, you should thoroughly wash and clean them. Remove any stems, leaves, rubber bands (if store-bought), etc.
- Draining is vital. After washing your greens, it’s absolutely essential to make sure that you’re draining them properly. Excess moisture locked in your greens is quite possibly the number one reason why they begin to lose their crispness.
- Use glass containers. Many people simply keep their greens in reusable green bags in the crisper drawer. While this works fine, it will indeed cause them to spoil quicker than if you were to store them in airtight glass containers. Keeping your veggies stored in glass works wonders for keeping them fresh and crisp.
