My picky 6 and 3 year old sons don't like a lot of foods, and green beans is one of them. I thought by trying this jazzed up version that I might have success. Both ate them, not as happily as I would have liked, but they did eat them! DH liked them, and I did as well. The sauce makes me think of a paprikash, just not as thick. It was a tasty combination that I'm glad to have enjoyed! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT3.
Most days I happily steam my veggies and eat them unadorned, but sometimes I want a little more without lots of added kitchen time and/or calories. These accomplished both and were delicious. I used frozen beans that were fully defrosted before using which reduced my initial cooking time a wee bit. I also used a combination of reduced and nonfat sour cream -- which makes the sauce a wee bit thinner but I'm used to that. Just adding the onions and paprika gave the beans a great flavor and the sour cream made them luxurious. Yummy. Thanks kiwidutch!
