Being on a ketogenic diet usually means that you’re missing some kind of crunch in your meals. Whether it’s meat and vegetables, a dessert, or just a snack – it’s notorious for being something textually soft. These roasted pecan green beans will give you a great pick-me-up from the old and dated recipes that you’re used to. The crisp and fresh green beans, the deliciously crunchy and salty pecans, and the melted cheese and garlic give a fantastic textural contrast.
