I needed a good green bean recipe STAT. Thank you, AllRecipes! Can you imagine being so focused on the main dish that you forget about the side dishes? Does anyone ever give you a quizzical look when you offer up BBQ chips as a side dish?
|Green Beans to the resuce!|
This tends to happen to me a lot. I forget about the sides! Luckily I had some frozen green beans and this recipe was super quick and delicious. It was even complimented! :) The original recipe had some sliced almonds in it too, but I made it without and it was just as good!
Lemon Pepper Green Beans
- Green beans (Frozen or fresh)
- Butter (1-3 TBSP depending on amount of beans)
- Lemon Pepper (1-2 tsp depending on amount of beans)
- garlic salt (optional)
Place green beans in a microwave-safe bowl with a little bit of water. Cover with plastic wrap and mcirowave on high (2 minutes for fresh, 3-4 minutes for frozen, depending on amount). Heat saute pan over medium heat. Melt butter in pan. Add green beans to pan and season with lemon pepper and garlic salt to taste. Sautee 3-5 minutes until appear cooked, but still a little crispy. They will look a little darker. That's it!
