  • Julienned and steamed. DH likes to saute bread crumbs in butter and top them with those, which I do sometimes but I like vegetables as themselves.

  • i trim them, cut them into 1 inch peices (tried whole once and halves once, the kids struggled for some reason), steam them, butter and salt and maybe pepper on them. simple and sooooo good.

  • Snap the ends and lay the green beans on a sheet of foil. Add a pat of butter, and sprinkle with a small amount of crushed red pepper. Add toasted slivered almonds. Seal foil into a pouch and bake, toss under the broiler, onto the bbq grill OR into the top basket of the rice steamer.

  • I use the microwave steaming bags and add some 'butter buds'. Tastes like butter but 0 calories!

  • Steamed. Then sauteed them in extra virgin olive oil with a sliced up medium white onion, with fresh cracked black pepper. Yum! Sometimes I mix in a half cup of cooked rice.
