I have this memory of reading this recipe off of a newspaper clipping. I can't even say for sure what newspaper or if I was the one who clipped it out. In any case it has been a family favorite for years.


  1. Steam the green beans until soft.
  2. Toast the sunflower seeds in a pan with a tiny bit of oil.
  3. Mix oil, mustard, garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper.
  4. Pour mixture over green beans and add sunflower seeds.
  5. May be served warm or cold. We prefer warm.

Man woke up one fine day and realized there's life beyond French's Green Bean Casserole and the ubiquitous "green beans' almondine, but green beans and sunflowers is a new take. Thanks!
