Green beans are just about the only veggie that my hubby will eat, so we eat them a LOT at our house. Our fave way (and I'm not sure if this will work for you, since you are not much of a red meat eater) is the following -

Take frozen (or fresh) grean beans, and put in a microwave-safe bowl. Add cooked and crumbled bacon (or real bacon bits from a package, but those are yucky), then add a couple of table spoons of butter or olive oil and a few finely chopped green onions. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for about 5 min (if using frozen veggies). You may want to stir once. If you need to add more time, stir, replace the plastic wrap, and cook again, at 1 min intervals until warm and yummy.

oh my gosh these look SO great. A girlfriend and I went to PF Chang's this weekend and she LOVES the green-bean appetizer. I'm forwarding her this right now!

What a fun party food! I think these will need to be featured at my little cocktail party for valentine's day.

Those are too cute! I use scissors to cut the ends off my green beans. These would go over really well around here. We eat those green bean fries from Fridays all the time.....these look 10 times better.

my mister ONLY eats green beans. i cook them over the stone, but add a little bit of sugar maybe a spoonful or two. it adds just enough sweetness to them to spice up the ordinary. plus its really easy.

this is genius! i actually just bought a poound of green beans yesterday and was looking for a new recipe for them - so thanks! can't wait to try this tonight :)

Mmm, yum. I recently discovered my love of green beans as well. We made dilly beans this last summer and I'm so, so addicted.

I LOVE green beans! My very favorite is quick cooked in a hot pan with lots of chopped garlic and bacon so the beans are still a little crunchy (its good with butter instead of bacon too!)

I'm diggin' your blog and your insanely cute sweet shoppe!

Oh my goodness, these look amazing!

i love this idea! and this is one of my bf's favorites, so thanks for the share!!!! cant wait to make them.

i really think my picky 5 year old will eat these... they look so cute AND yummy! I'm definitely going to make them! Thanks for sharing your creativity... I LOVE your blog :)

Loveliness. Everything about this is loveliness.

But I thought I'd share with you a super simple green bean recipe my dad found in a Julia Child's cookbook years ago. Who knows what it's actually called. We call them "Bean-Beans" and have been known to sit on my parents bed eating them out of the pot with our fingers like popcorn.

Snap the ends off your beans. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and throw a pound or two of beans in. Boil them for 5-7 minutes, leaving them still tendercrisp! Drain in a colander, put the beans back into the warm pot and toss with a couple tablespoons of buttter (or olive oil) Use garlic and onion powder on them like you would salt and pepper - seasoning lightly depending on the amount of beans you have. Use salt and pepper. Then, just before serving (so the cheese doesn't melt and clump up too much) sprinkle them generously with parmesan cheese and toss. Uh-may-zing. My family's favorite.

OMG, I MUST try making these!!!
