Lemony Garlic Beans (Microwave)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mandy

This is a really nice way to serve beans, the beans retain a nice crispness & the sauce has a subtle lemon flavour which goes nicely with the garlic.

I also enjoyed the hint of lemon in this dish. I did not need salt and pepper as there was a lot of flavor from the onion. My cooking method was a little different but with the same out come. First I steamed my gr beans, meanwhile I brought my onion and garlic to a sweat in the butter. Then added the flour and cooked 1 minute next came the lemon. Lastly I added 1 cup of water that I dissolved 1 chicken bullion cube in. When the sauce was nice and thick I added the beans. This is really very good and easy to make and is thumbs up better then that mushroom soup gr bean stuff, healthier too. Made for *Holiday Beverage Tag* game 2007 (Dec)
