Monday Morning in the Kitchen: Eat Your Green Beans!

Some foods are so delicious, they don't need a complicated recipe.  Although I certainly approve of preserving the harvest, nothing beats the taste of freshly-picked fruits and veggies.  When our produce co-op box contained green beans, I knew exactly how I wanted to fix them.




Steamed Green Beans with Bacon

Wash and trim green beans, by snapping off the ends and breaking the beans into bite-size pieces.  Steam over a pot of boiling water for 10 minutes or so, until tender-crisp.  Meanwhile, cook several slices of bacon until crisp.  Crumble into small pieces.  Combine steamed beans and crumbled bacon and serve hot.  

What is your favorite way to serve green beans?  Do you have a favorite variety of beans?  (I really love yellow wax beans!)
Thanks for fresh vegetables.

  4. You know -- if I put bacon on them I might even get my grown daughter eat green beans. I love them and so does Grampy! One of my easy fast ways to fix them is to steam them as you did but then put them into the sauce pan with 2 or 3 tablespoons of apricot jam. Yum!
