This year, don’t make that same old boring, full of canned soup green bean casserole for Thanksgiving. Give this fresh and tasty alternative a try!
Fresh Green Beans
1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
1 T. olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. chicken stock
1/4 c. white wine (optional)
Step one: heat olive oil in a skillet and add garlic and green beans
Step two: saute until crisp tender
Step three: add stock and wine, continue to saute, stirring frequently until slightly browned
Step four: season with salt and pepper
These beans are perfect for a Thanksgiving side dish, but they are also terrific as a weekly side with any meat, pizza or burgers. I make them often and the kids gobble them up!
Give them a try, and stay tuned this month for more healthier holiday switches!
