  • Mix the eggs and vinegar in a bowl, add the reserved water, and beat the ingredients together with a fork. Pour the mixture over the beans.
  • Add the onion, garlic, salt and pepper, and stir until the beans are coated with the sauce. Serve warm.

    These were way better than I expected them to be. I kept cooking until the eggs/sauce was firm as I don't like runny eggs. Very tasty.

    I softened the onions & garlic in a bit of olive oil. The sauce is kind of like hollandaise! I'd add more vinegar next time. I microwave/steamed a bag of green beans & this worked well. I imagine it's even better with fresh beans! Thanks, Karen Elizabeth, you VIP of the Veggie Swap 2/10, you!!
