Garlic French Green Beans

24 May

I am proud to say that I have converted my bf to loving frozen veggies!!  Of course, fresh is always better… but  on most nights there is nothing easier than having all sorts of different produce ready to go!  The produce we mostly keep in the freezer includes broccoli, corn, cauliflower, spinach, mixed veggies, and haricot verts (AKA French green beans)!  In addition to veggies, I love frozen berries and bananas- for some emergency banana soft serve (:

Garlic French Green Beans

Serves 2

1 1/3 cup French green beans

2 Tbsp. vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance olive oil buttery spread)

4-5 garlic cloves, chopped small

1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning, salt free

Salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

In a medium nonstick sauté pan, cook the chopped garlic in vegan margarine over medium heat; add fresh ground black pepper and Italian seasoning.  Meanwhile, either thaw or steam and drain the French green beans.

Once the garlic is softened add the thawed or par-cooked green beans then stir to coat each with butter and garlic.  Let cook over medium heat for 3-5 minutes, salt if needed, then enjoy (:
