Shortcut Asian Green Beans

Shortcut Asian Green Beans Recipe

Pinit

Green beans are probably my favorite vegetable. I think I could eat them every day!
My Nana makes the best green beans, stringing them herself and then cooking them for hours with butter and bacon or ham. (Yes, I know – this is making a healthy vegetable rather unhealthy, but you can’t deny that they have amazing flavor!)
Most of the time, we just revert to canned green beans. I know, I know. They aren’t nearly as good as Nana’s. But I’m a working girl! I don’t want to take the time to string those beans myself and give them the tender care they need! So canned green beans will do in a pinch for us.
Then I found this fun variation on green beans and decided to try it. It’s a bit unusual, but we love it! AND it’s super quick and easy! All you do is throw 5 ingredients in a pot and heat them up! We like to serve these with our Coconut Pecan Chicken.

These green beans may never rival Nana’s tender, home-cooked delicacies, but you can’t beat it for a super fast and unique green bean side dish!

  1. These look yummy and super easy to make. I love recipes that take less than 10 minutes. Oh, and bonus! This one’s vegan, so I have to try it. 😉

    • Mrs. Herb on said:

      Haha that’s great Lindsay!! Glad I could share something you can make. Hope you enjoy!

  2. Okay, so I finally made this, and it is DELISH! I used frozen, whole green beans instead of canned, and I added a little sprinkle of sliced almonds on top. I’m hooked. Thanks for the great recipe. 🙂

    • Mrs. Herb on said:

      So glad you liked them Lindsay! Oooh- I like the idea of the almonds! Unfortunately, almonds and Mr. Herb don’t mix too well, so I’d only be able to add them to mine!

      • I just made these for our Easter dinner side dish. They were so so yummy!
