Such a simple, easy and delicious way to enjoy green beans. Feel free to adjust seasoning and butter amounts to your personal taste.


  1. Trim and wash green beans.
  2. Set beans in a collander over boiling water. Cover and steam until just tender. Don't over cook!
  3. Add butter, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper and stir until butter has melted.
  4. Serve immediately and enjoy!

What a perfect way to jazz up green beans! The flavor was a bit too subtle for me so I added teaspoon more of each dill, lemon, and butter, and a dash or two more salt and pepper. This is a very tasty side that I make often. Thank you.
