Grecian Green Beans

"A nice change from the regular green beans and taters. This is a great side dish that is refreshing. Even tho the recipe doesn't call for it, I kick mine up with a bit of minced garlic (my secret passion)."

    LOVED these beans!! Easy, delicious, and surprisingly flavorful for the few ingredients, these beans made a wonderful accompaniment to my orange roughy. These beans are versatile enough that they could go as a side to a good number of main dishes. I followed all directions and ingredients as posted, with the exception that I ran out of regular olive oil right before making this dish, so I had to use a porcini infused olive oil that I had just bought. This added a delicious subtle mushroom flavor to the dish that went over so well that I think I will use the infused oil from now on when I make this dish. Thanks for this keeper--I will definitely make these beans again. Made for ZWT4.

    Excellent side dish that went very well with Recipe #276581. Followed the recipe -- adding garlic and a bit of dried parsley and mint. Thoroughly enjoyed for Zaar World Tour.
