    Buster's friend's Note:

    This is just yummmm, fast & serves as a nice foil for a more unctuous meal (think pork ragu) or as part of a lighter meal allround.

    1. 1
      Snap ends off beans; cut in half if beans are large. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Add the beans, onion, garlic, salt, if using, and pepper.
    2. 2
      Bring back to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer and cook about 8 minutes, until the beans are crisp-tender; drain.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle the sunflower seeds and oregano over the beans. Toss lightly to mix.

      Nice, healthy dish that my family enjoyed! Thanks for posting, it came in very handy when I came across a great sale on fresh green beans! Oh, and it's in the piggy dish because I put all my healthy foods in piggy bowls to remind me not to be a piggy and to eat healthy! (The bowls were provided by a fellow Zaar member during a swap and DO come in handy!)
