I really enjoyed this dish. I don't know how much my green beens weighed, but there were enough for 4 people to have a large serving. I used the full amount of everything else and it was really tasty. I steamed my beans, and they took longer than 5 minutes to get them soft enough, but it's worth the extra time to keep the nutrition from boiling away.
