Not bad. I added more more pepper and doubled the mustard, as well as adding an extra 1/2 tsp or so of butter. It was acceptable as it was, but somewhat bland. Even with the additions, it was still a tad bland. That said, in terms of cheap, fast, and easy green bean side dishes, it's perfectly acceptable.
Chive Green Beans
Leave green beans whole for a restaurant-caliber look. Or try this recipe with other vegetables, such as steamed carrots or fresh asparagus. This dish is a good example of how you should consider grams of fat as well as the percentage of calories from fat, which here is more than 30%. Yet the 1.9 grams of fat in the recipe is low.
