About the Recipe

These green bean recipes can be made on different occasions. You can pick and choose how ever you want and pair them with your favorite meals. But they all are easy to make, healthy, and very flavorful side dishes.

One of them uses blanched green beans, garlic and a hint of lemon. In the second, you have to bake them in the oven. The last recipe is one that I have been eating since I was a littler girl - and by far my favorite. It uses butter, salt and breadcrumbs.
Pick your favorite!
