Balsamic Green Beans

"This is a quick and easy way to spruce up green beans. And they disappear fast. My family devours these. I created this when I was looking for something different to do with green beans in a hurry. A nice side for company too!"

ingredients

directions

  • Place green beans in microwave safe dish with the butter. Cover and cook on high for five minutes.
  • Add vinegar and parmesan cheese. Cook on high five more minutes (covered).
  • Stir to make sure the beans are well coated with the vinegar mixture.
  • Serve and enjoy!
  • These would work well with fresh green beans too. You would just need to adjust the cooking time.
  • Ingredient amounts can be adjusted to suit your taste. I will sometimes increase the parmesan cheese and use 2 tablespoons of butter.

She was expecting her daughter when the photo was taken. The other photo is Jacob & grandma :), both were taken last Saturday (03/29/08) while we were climbing a local butte. Those two little boys did an amazingly good job of hiking the steep trail (so did grandma!). Food is my passion. I love to cook, I love to read recipes, I have hundreds of cookbooks. My favorite cookbook is Recipezaar! Since I joined in 2002 it has become the first place I go when looking for a recipe. Cooking is what I do for fun. I love to travel! Not only do I get to see new places and meet interesting people - I get to try new food. My other passions are my grandkids!!!

    To cut calories I didn't use the cheese, so I added some garlic and heb seasoning instead and these were very good. I used 16 oz. of frozen haricot verts so I cooked them a couple of minutes longer. I'm sure with the cheese they'll be even better!

    I made these for Thanksgiving dinner and my family did not like them at all.

    I used only 1/8 cup of balsamic vinegar. I liked that it was cooked in the microwave. I had to add 5 minutes to the cooking time. I'll try again with another cheese like cheddar or mozza. Thanks Alskann. Made for Alphabet chef game

    I used a 16 bag of frozen cut green beans. The balsamic vinegar could be reduced to 2 tablespoons but the cheese is perfect. I will need to try these again with fresh beans or as suggested asparagus.
