Green beans are actually a good source of beta-carotene and contain very high levels of vitamin k, vitamin c and are very high in fiber! Are you looking for a way to use up your summer crop? Or maybe you found the sweet deal I did this week at the grocery store (.99 cents per lb!). This is my go-to fix that works with most vegetables and always tastes great! This recipe is very simple, healthy and low fat.
Easy Summertime Beans
by, The Skinny B
Prep & Cook in minutes
1 lb fresh green beans
McCormick Perfect Pinch Salad Supreme Seasoning
Fresh cracked pepper (optional)
Sea salt (or table salt, for water)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Begin with a 2/3 full pot of water, add about a tsp of salt, bring to a boil. Add in beans, boil until al dente (this is the most important step so you don’t end up with mushy beans, they will be ready very quickly so don’t walk away from the stove). Drain.
Put beans in large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the beans (enough to lightly coat, you don’t want to end up with a pool of oil in the bottom of the bowl). Sprinkle the McCormick Perfect Pinch Salad Supreme Seasoning over the beans (you don’t need a lot, a few shakes will do the trick). Crack some fresh pepper if you desire (to taste). Now take a large spoon and toss the beans around to evenly distribute your oil and seasoning.
That’s it! Enjoy.
