  • 1 pound wax beans, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted peanuts

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss wax beans with oil and season with salt and pepper.
