These beans were very good...not super fantastic, but good. I didn't understand the reason for boiling some of the herbs and the garlic with the green beans, so I put all the herbs together with the butter. Then I boiled the beans for about 4 minutes, and added them to the herb butter along with salt and pepper and sunflower seeds. I think I liked the beans better without the seeds.

I think next time I will reduce the marjoram but otherwise this is great.
