I'm always trying to get my DH to eat his vegetables, so this is what I came up with today.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mince dill and chives.
  2. Bring vegetable stock to a boil, add beans and cook 1-2 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes or until tender.
  4. Remove beans from stock and toss with chives and dill. Cover tightly and let sit for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Add pepper if desired.

I liked the taste the broth gave the beans, but I wish I had fresh dill. Will defiantly make this again - livens up plain boring green beans. Thanks for sharing Acadia! Made for Adopt a Veggie tag.
