These are delicious, and can entice even the pickiest of non-veggie eaters! Super easy to make with 5 ingredients you probably already have! Perfect Side dish for any meal. Enjoy!


  1. Remove stems from beans.
  2. Add garlic, butter and green beans to frying pan, simmer covered on medium low heat -stirring occasionally- for 20 minutes or until beans are tender.
  3. Drizzle small amount of honey and maple syrup on top of beans occasionally as they cook. You can add as much or as little as you like for desired sweetness!

This is FANTASTIC! I made it last night, almost exactly as written*. I went easy on the honey & maple syrup -- "drizzle" is exactly the right word. Add a bit, taste, add a bit more if needed ... it came out just right. It's pleasantly sweet, and not at all overpowering. The maple flavor doesn't dominate, nor does the honey. I can't wait to try this one out on my daughter. * I didn't pay attention & ended up adding the honey & maple syrup almost at the end of cooking. Turned out fine!
