Fancy Green Beans

Okay, this is really simple, but I gotta tell you, they look and taste fantastic! They make an excellent side dish for a formal dinner! This simple side dish enhances the vegetables and shows you pay attention to cooking methods.

  • Green beans (fresh is best)
  • 1/4 tbs chopped red pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely minced
  • Zest and juice from 1 lemon


Place green beans, garlic, and red pepper in a steaming tray and steam them until the beans just turn bright green. They should still be crisp but cooked. The red pepper and garlic will soften from the steam and heat as well.

Toss with lemon juice and lemon zest. Serve.

I don't like green beans out of a can. Garden-fresh green beans, with a side of t-bone steak... now that's a meal to me!

Thanks for your comment!
