Lemony Green Beans
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
I will be adding this green bean recipe to the rotation. Lemon flavor was not overpowering but light.
This was a delicious way to prepare green beans, much more interesting than simply steaming frozen green beans in the microwave. I love garden-fresh green beans, so I'm looking forward to making this quick and simple recipe with beans from the garden in the summer. (For those wondering about a cooking time, I use 20 minutes, covered, as my rule of thumb, when cooking green beans on the stove. Adjust accordingly for personal tastes, of course.) I also sprinkle slivered almonds into the pan a couple minutes before cooking is done.
I didn't have lemon pepper. I followed the recipe except after draining I added a little butter, salt, pepper and squeezed half a lemon on the beans and tossed. It gave a light lemony flavor to the beans and was a refreshing change for our table. Loved it and didn't have any leftovers!
Since cooking time was not mentioned, I removed them from the heat way too early. Had to take them from our plates to finish cooking as they were raw!
These were really quite good! My husband and I liked them and even my picky 3 year old loved them. Other than the pain of trimming the beans, these were super easy to make!
