  1. Lovely recipe - I took the liberty to use fresh beans (the garden is loaded) and fresh mushrooms. I sauted the onions and mushrooms together added the raw green beans, 3 tbsp water, covered and simmered for about 12 minutes - The beans were still crisp but hot through. Served with Smoked Beef ribs, new carrots and a roasted potato Great meal Thanks Jenny
  2. Very flavourful green beans, I used fresh green beans and fresh mushrooms, didn't have any pimiento, but it wasn't missed except for the colour would have been a nice addition. I cooked the mushrooms and onions together with the garlic then added the beans, covered them and cooked about 15 minutes, lovely!! We liked the slight peppery taste. Thanks for posting I will make them again.
  3. I made these for dinner last night and they were a hit! I used dried minced onion (a sprinkling) instead of fresh but otherwise everything was the same. I am going to try it with fresh green beans and mushrooms ~ I think it will be fantastic. It's a really quick and easy way to liven up green beans. Thank you so much for posting a keeper!
  4. I really enjoyed this. I thawed the beans before using, and I thought they cooked perfectly - very good flavor. The pepper was a bit overpowering, so I'll use 1/4 tsp. next time.
  5. This is a very colorful side dish that complemented the flavor of the green beans without domination. The chef have proven that a low fat meal can still be interesting. I look forward to tasting more of her recipes.


I'm a widow in my 50's, kids all married, but I'm busier than I've ever been. I travel, write fiction, go to Country Western Opry's to judge the talent of artists, cook & enjoy my grandkids. I love blond jokes (even though I am one)& people say they like my sense of humor. If I didn't have it, wouldn't I stay angry when there's so many blond jokes told?? I recently took guitar lessons for awhile, & took piano lessons as a child but playing music ain't my thing - listening to it is! I have one published book & was supposed to have had a children's book published by now but there's too little time to accomplish all I want to do every day. I'll get it done before too long & will let you know when.
