what do you add to them? I buy the cut green beans, no salt added. I've been putting minced garlic and onions in them, but I'd like something different.


TIA

Steam them and add a little butter and some summer savoury. If you have fresh savoury, use that but dried will do as well. mmmm

I like to add a little butter and toss in some dried cranberries and almond slivers.

Boil them until crisp-tender then chill and marinate in a balsamic vinegar or regular red wine vinegar and oil dressing. I love to do this with cauliflower as well and serve together with cherry tomatoes and sliced black olives on a platter. Looks pretty too!

I steam them. While they're steaming, I toast sliced almonds, add some butter, garlic, pepper, and then the steamed beans.

I roast them. Drizzle olive oil on them and toss. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Roast 7 minutes and turn them. Roast another 5 or so. Sprinkle them with grated Parmesan cheese.

Canned green beans get pressured cooked with country ham or bacon.

I just thought of another one: Mix together steamed beans and potatoes, add some caesar dressing and toss to combine. Delicious!

Best Recipe Ever:

Steam the green beans.

Place green beans in pan with 3-5 T of margarine.
Allow the melted margarine to coat the green beans, mixing occasionally.
Add bread crumbs (your desired amount...we never measure...maybe a fourth or third of a cup. Depends on the amount of green beans cooked.)
Mix until bread crumbs are sticking to green beans.

These green beans are to die for. My daughters donít care for vegetables but they will gobble up these beans.

Is that can or frozen green beans? For those, I donít know.

I buy fresh green beans, then just steam them.
Mayonnaise with a little soy sauce mixed in it makes a tasty dip/sauce for the green beans.

(Other steamed vegetables I like with this sauce is broccoli, cauliflower, artichokes, and zucchini.)

I make Paula Dean's green bean bundles. Several beans have bacon wrapped around them to hold them together. Delicious and so cute!

Dill is good with green beans. And even a little sour cream.
