Every year we plant green beans in the garden and every year so many of them goes to waste because we get tired of eating plain old cooked beans. But not this year I have decided to try some new recipes so that those green beans end up on the dinner table for us to enjoy.
I found a simple green bean recipe that has a little more flavor, but doesn’t take that much more time to make and the nice thing about it, it’s healthy. We all enjoyed it so much that I thought I would share it just in case you have some green beans that are sitting in your garden waiting to be picked and you weren’t quite sure what to do with them.
