Delicious! Served this with meatloaf and oven roasted potatoes but could be served with anything. My picky 2 year-old even tried a carrot! My bf doesn't usually care for cooked carrots but these weren't all mushy like he thinks cooked carrots usually are. He enjoyed this a lot and so did I. Will definitely be making this again. Might also be good with other veggies. Yum!

Very nice side dish! I used 3/4 green beans and 1/4 matchstick carrots. My cooking method was to parboil the vegetables in a heavy stockpot, drain, then saute them in the same stockpot in a combination of half butter and half olive oil. I will make this recipe again. Thanks!

This side dish is so pretty. I blanched the veggies, and then quickly reheated them in a saute pan with butter and garlic. I have some leftovers that I can't wait to get my fork on ;) Thanks.

Where have you been all my life ??!! I always get a bit worried when I have company and to organise everything on-time. This is a life saver. I found some very small green beans (Costco) that the first batch was 5 mins second batch was 4 mins (boiled on the stove) wish I had done 3.5 mins they were so small and cooked while I got them into a cold water bath to stop the cooking process. The carrots got 5 mins and wow even they were just done. Everything was put into ziplock bags and ready for the dinner the next day.

This was good and easy to make. I used a 16 ounce package of frozen green beans and a bag of matchstick carrots. I misread the ingredients and used 3 tablespoons of butter which I thought was a good amount. I then used garlic powder instead of minced garlic but I just sprinkled it on. I also made this in the microwave. We all enjoyed them.
