No More Plain Jane Green Beans

Recipe by Mamas Kitchen Hope

A fast fix that makes those veggies shine! Now that they make those bags of veggies that steam right in the bag this is so fast and easy yet looks and tastes special.

5stars. Excellent flavor. Made this for Christmas eve and they were so well liked. Delicious. The fresh beans and fresh lemon juice made it sheer perfection as a side dish. Thanks for posting Hope! Enjoy! ChefDLH

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean green beans if using fresh. Steam green beans in the microwave or preferred method.
  2. Mix lemon juice, garlic powder, pepper and olive oil together in the bowl you will be serving the veggies. (If you are using fresh lemon I like to add some of the zest to this as well).
  3. Add cooked green beans and fold to distribute the 'sauce' at the bottom.
  4. Sprinkle with parmesan if desired- kids like that part.
  5. Serve!
