I made this quick & easy recipe to go along with lunch today & DH said it's his new favorite green bean recipe. DS (16) missed the bacon in the old recipe but loves the idea of this one being healthier for us. DH went to the store for the ingredients this morning & had two produce employees trying to figure out what haricots vert were. I didn't think to mention it... he's watched plenty of FoodNetwork with me. ;) But he came home with "French green beans" in a 6oz ready to steam bag. So I made a half recipe & the 3 of us scarfed it down right away. The initial flavor is fresh tangy lemon & then the sauteed garlic shines through. A light & refreshing side dish. Delish! Thanks for sharing this recipe, ohbother! We'll be bothering to make it again & again. ;) Made & enjoyed for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef.
Fantastic! My favorite way to eat green beans. Been making this for years, but with the addition of a spoon of grated cheese. Great flavor.
This was a great recipe!!! Easy to make and very good, I just used the fresh green beans out of the garden and since I'm with out a grater I used the peeler to get nice yellow strips of zest worked out beautifully both in taste and appearance. we will be fixing this one again.
