Fresh Green Bean Bundles

"A great way to fix green beans, one of my favorite vegetables. These can be prepared using French-style green beans, frozen or canned, as a substitute. Just be sure to skip the blanching step of the recipe."

    Tasty! Great combo of sweet with a tad of spicy - perfect combination. I have made another form of the bundles before and incorporated a slice of red pepper with each green bean bundle to give colour. I used 3/4 cup agave nectar in place of brown sugar to prevent my glucose from going through the roof and only a couple tablespoons of melted butter. Agave is sweeter than brown sugar and typically I use .75 to 1 for sweetness consistency (aka 3/4 cup to one cup). I was worried about a whole tablespoon of chili powder, but my guest encouraged me to go for it as I was mixing it up before putting in the oven. Did not disappoint. Perfect combo of kick balanced with the sweetness of the agave. The agave nectar substitution worked perfectly with no ill effects to the recipe. Very tasty dish and the added red pepper slice with each bundle gave a bit of colour. I can't remember if I photographed, but will post if I did. Great recipe Lainey.

    We liked this a lot but would severely cut down the sugar next time as it was a little too on the sweet side for our tastes. The chili was a nice edition and we used fresh green beans so this was tasty. Please see my Rating System: 4 lovely stars for a quick and easy recipe that went down well on a week night. Thanks!
