Recipe by VegSocialWorker

From the October 2006 Vegetarian Times. I made this without the oil and it worked just fine.

These were FANTASTIC! I used a little less than 2 TB of peanut oil, some extra lemon juice, and a whole bag of frozen petite whole green beans. The perfect accompaniment for all kinds of dishes and great on their own too.
