Extra Special Steamed Green Beans

Extra Special Steamed Green Beans created by Marg CaymanDesigns

I learned this seasoning trick from a restaurant chef. It really improves the flavor but keeps the green beans healthier than adding a lot of butter to them. I have never liked green beans but I love them prepared this way. My kids do too!

    These were the best green beans ever. Even my husband was not reaching for the Parmesan cheese to coat them with. I did cut the cook time down by simmering them in 1 inch of boiling water for 6 mins for crisp tender.

    Wow, these green beans really are special! I cook them in my electric steamer, then proceed with the rest of the recipe, and they turn out perfect every time. I love to use the french green beans I buy in bulk at Costco. Just love this recipe... thanks!

    I just couldn't wait till the green beans were ripe enough to pick, so substituted with yellow. I also sprinkled with cracked red peppercorns. So fast and easy, not to mention soooo tasty. Thanks Marg, for another terrific recipe. Made for the Garden Forum's August Recipe Challenge: Green Beans and Basil!
