Simply Spiced String/ Green Beans

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

A very simple recipe, yet a bit different from your regular string bean side dish. You can serve this warm or chilled, I always serve it chilled as a salad.

This was so good! I made half the recipe, and later in the week regretted not having any more leftovers! The flavor was outstanding and the method was super-easy. I served it with recipe #176499 and recipe #83289.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and trim the string beans.
  2. I usually start out with more string beans than the 3 pounds called for in the recipe since I eat a lot raw and not all of them make it into the pot.
  3. Combine with all the other ingredients in a 3 quart pot and mix.
  4. Cook, covered on a small flame for 30 minutes.
  5. Drain.
  6. Serve warm or chilled.
