Tips and Variations
Tips and Variations
  • Substitute 1 tablespoon fresh herbs for the 1/2 teaspoon dried herbs, if you have them on hand.
  • If you don’t have a full pound of green beans, add other fresh vegetables. Parboil hard vegetables (carrots, broccoli, etc.) until they are crisp.
  • To boost the flavor, add 1 clove chopped garlic when you saute the onions. Add 1/4 cup chopped black or green olives when you add the beans.
