I'm probably a bit biased because green beans are my favorite vegetable, but, this recipe came out great! I made a few subs as I was just trying to use things I already had. I used ground thyme, a very small amount of kosher salt, and some sautéed red onions. I would recommend steaming them longer than 5 minutes...mine came out much crispier than expected. Still delicious though :-)
I made these as a side to the herbed mushroom chicken. They were quick, crunchy, and very tasty. Quick & easy is a huge plus for me with any recipe, and anytime I can serve my family fresh, it's a bonus.
