    I was going to post a recipe for Herbed Green Beans, but yours is so similar that I will review yours instead... I use one pound of thawed frozen green beans, then melt 3 T butter and proceed with step 4. I usually use 1/4 c. of onion, which reduces carbs, and the dried herbs. My version came from 500 Low Carb Recipes by Dana Carpender.

    These were just okay for us. It definetly had a fresh taste to it, but too much onion for us. I might or might not make this again.

    We loved this, great way to jazz up the humble green bean. Wonderful flavours. I served this with prime rib. Thanks for sharing.

    These beans are a refreshing change of pace!!! I used frozen (no nice looking fresh at the store when I went)beans and cooked them until JUST tender. I then drained them and sauteed the celery, onions and herbs until the onion was transparent. I them added the beans again and heated until warm! This will be served often here, the flavor is fresh and unique..we truly enjoyed them.

    These are very good. We enjoyed the herbs and I really appreciated the fact that the recipe not only listed fresh but the exchange for dried. When preparing, I discovered that I had no celery so I sprinkled some celery seasoning over the beans when adding the others herbs. Used olive oil in place of the butter. Served it with your Spicy Glazed Chicken #119553 and Bringing Home Baby Carrots #107518 by cookin4myboys.


<p>I love cooking and trying different foods, but my favorite cookbooks are now Weight Watchers or low fat/low cal cookbooks as I tend to try and make low fat/low cal recipes. I lost over 90 pounds on Weight Watchers and have maintained for over a year now -- so my cooking/eating habits have changed drastically following my weight loss and to keep it off!</p>
