DD green beans recipe????
Besides just steaming green beans, do you have a favorite way of preparing them that would be good for a DD?

You can roast them (even canned or frozen) - just pop them onto a baking sheet, spritz with olive oil cooking spray and sprinkle with salt, then bake at 400f for about 25 minutes. They get a really different flavor cooked that way.
I do whole okra and asparagus this way as well.

The Del Monte canned Seasoned Green Beans are great. They have enough flavor plain that I don't need them swimming in butter like regular ones.

Hey Dottie, thanks for the reminder!! I usually fix my okra like that and did try it once with green beans. Very yummy!!

My favorite way to eat green beans is steamed then put in frying pan with garlic, EVOO and then topped with Parmesan. Definetely an UD side!

I like the extra fine long green beans that I sometimes buy at Aldi Foods. Slice red pepper into long thin slices, and slice a large onion into long thin slices. You are going to fry up the beans, red pepper, and onion until it is all quite browned and caramelized.

But first, steam the veggies until they are all tender. Then brown them in a non-stick skillet with only a teaspoon of olive oil, but when you start the browning, add a clove of garlic, all minced up fine and stirred in. Season with a bit of sea salt.

This is delicious. You can vary the proportion of pepper and onion to green beans, depending on how many calories you are allotting to it... big mound of it on your plate or just a side of it along with tilapia or whatever, etc.

That sounds delicious Pat! So does baking them. I'll have to try both ways.

I don't think this poster was a JUDDD follower, or realized the way we eat on Down Days. :laugh:

But still very sweet to offer a suggestion. LOL

I figured as much. However, that recipe sounds pretty darn good other than the carbquick, for an UD!

Canned french cut green beans are the only canned veg I still like. I LOVE them with just a smear of butter, or with a wedge of garlic/herb Laughing Cow melted into them, or with a tablespoon of salsa mixed in. Or plain, with pepper.
