LOOKING for: Frozen Green Beans

GreenjeansJanuary 2, 2002

Anyone know how to make tasty green beans without the use of meats or anything too fattening? What would you think of dropping in a gob of pesto for flavor? All help appreciated.

I love green beans, with pesto sounds good. Here are some other recipes:

Steam beans- then drizzle with good quality olive oil.
Sprinkle on "stuff" for color like roasted red peppers, red onions that have been pan sauteed, leftover mushrooms, garlic to taste, Vidallia onions in season, pan sauteed shallots ets.etc.
ALso cumble on a small quantity of GOOD quality cheeese- ie
bleu, gorgonzola, montrachet, pecorino romano-- when you are really feeling extravagent (sic?)
And Sew it goes,

My favorite is to put the beans in a little water in a saute pan. Allow to "steam" until beans are defrosted and almost done to your liking. The water should evaporate, if not drain the beans and place back into skillet/pan. Add a small bit of butter, margarine, diet margarine, or olive oil (depending on your preference) and some fresh garlic. Mince it or slice it paper paper thin. Stir and saute until the garlic is fragrant.

Talk about heaven! I also like to add baby carrots to the above, and is nice with mixed green and yellow beans. You can also throw in a handful of slivered almonds, pecans, walnuts, whatever with the garlic. Do the same with fresh beans. For meat lovers, you can also add some soy-type meat free bacon style bits (LOL, you know what I mean, fake bacon bits).

Saute some sliced almonds in a bit of butter until nicely golden (can add some minced onion, too). Add hot cooked bean to the pan & toss to mix. Delicious. Corrie
