I’ve always had it in my head that green beans need to be savory, rich with flavor. The other night I was brainstorming about green beans, because I had to send green beans for Rob’s thanksgiving lunch at his work. I thought, “Why can’t green beans be sweet?” See below for the recipe that I came up with. I got several compliments, so this recipe was a success!
