Rather nice beans! Can be made richer with the use of cream and butter, or calorie conscious with yoghurt! From Readers Digest : Quick And Thrifty Cooking In South Africa

  1. Bring about 2 cm of lightly salted water to the boil in a medium-size saucepan. Add the trimmed beans and cook, covered, for 8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain in a colander.
  2. In the same saucepan, melt the butter and cook the onion over low heat for one minute.
  3. Return the beans to the saucepan, add the sour cream and paprika, and stir together. Heat the mixture gently. but do not let it boil or the sauce will curdle.
  4. Serve!

Loved these green beans - so delicious! The sour cream really adds a nice tartness/richness to the beans and the paprika really compliments them too. Served them with a sauted red cabbage dish and rotisserie chicken. Made for Culinary Quest - U. S. Southern Region, August, 2014.
