Chive Green Beans

Karry Hosford

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.
