I thought it was delicious, and though no doubt a bit more time consuming than the standard version, it was quite good. I used thick thick cut bacon, which might have boosted the flavor while hurting the "light" aspect, and I also added two cloves of garlic because...well...why wouldn't you add garlic to shallots, bacon, and green beans?!?!
Very good. Even my 4-year old raves about these. Very easy.
I don't even like green beans but these were delicious. I even used the leftovers in a quick stir fry the next day and that was great.
Great. Simple, tasty, and healthy.
I must have done something wrong. I followed the recipe exactly, and my garlic was anything but toasted. We were very disappointed in this dish.
Tried the soy-sesame version. Will definitely make again, but with less red pepper.
Simple and delicious. Even our 3 year old ate quite a bit - which is saying something. I did the garlic/butter/olive oil variation, with extra garlic.
This was an easy way to add a little something extra (je ne sais quois?) to green beans. The beans were nice & firm, and the garlic was not overpowering. Good enough to serve at Thanksgiving, but quick enough to make on a weeknight.
