I think green bean recipes are like pairs of can't have too many! Here's a real quick and easy one.

  2. Heat oil in the same pan; stir in mustard and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add beans; toss to coat and serve warm.

Great way to serve green beans! I sauteed chopped garlic and onion in the olive oil. I also used more dijon mustard and threw in a splash of white wine. Delicious!

Mmmm! I only had canned green beans, so I didn't have to cook them first. I also cut the recipe in half because I just used one can. The garlic adds a nice touch, but it would be delicious without!

These are very good. I agree with Sugarpea that you need to add more Dijon. I also sauteed onion and garlic in the olive oil and then added the other ingredients. Yummy.
