MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 16, 2012

I did not care for this recipe. I think it may have been a lot better if cooked on the stove. I found the green beans to be too rubbery when cooked in the microwave.

This is a good, easy, healthy, and pretty recipe. The vegetables are fresh and retain a lot of their nutrients.
