What a nice, light, side veggie. I used frozen beans and cut the recipe in half, and it still turned out great.

These went very nicely with Erin's meatloaf for supper. thanks Miller for a good one! I used white wine vinegar and canned, rinsed and well drained, whole green beans, no fresh around right now.

I served this at my vegan dinner party, and it was a big hit. I used the white wine vinegar, and I may have used too much since it seemed very vinegary to me. But my guests commented that it went perfectly alongside "Taste of Morocco", another recipe I found here.
