Easy Braised Green Beans

Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  The Green Bean Casserole is one of the favorite dishes and meets the so called vegetable requirement for thanksgiving day for some. This easy one pot dish is a healthy and convenient alternative.  You can use fresh or frozen whole green beans.  The other ingredients are from your cupboard.  One thing more, you are using the braising method thus no oil is used which means you will have more room for that favorite pie of yours (just kidding).

Try this refreshing change from gooey green bean casserole.  It is delicious and easy to make.

Easy Braised Green Beans

  • 1 lb fresh or frozen whole green beans
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp dry onion flakes
  • 1 tbsp dry garlic flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
Place all the ingredients in a saute pan and allow the liquid to boil till the green beans are cooked but still crispy.  Stir when all the liquid is nearly gone.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
