These are very good and the spices really come forward. I think a splash of vinegar might put these over the top for me. Thanks, VeggieCook98, for a green bean side dish I will reach for again! Made for Veggie Recipe Swap 42.

Finally, a way to cook fresh green beans that I like! I liked the spice combo here, but I cut way back on the tumeric for personal preference. Will definitely keep this recipe handy as bean season isn't far away!

Spicy is right! These almost knock you over with flavor. I really like the cooking technique as well; I'm going to try it with other seasoning combinations. Thanks for posting!
