Garden Fresh Steamed Green Beans

Our garden is producing plenty of fresh veggies these days, so I thought I would share a quick and delicious recipe with ya’ll that is sure to brighten up your dinner table.:) We had a small crop of green beans this year, only enough for a few meals, but regardless of that fact we have been enjoying every bite! All you need for this recipe is a medium pot, a metal vegetable steamer basket (which is not as complicated as it sounds), water, green beans, and spices! If you do not have a steamer basket, you can get one for anywhere from five to ten dollars at Walmart or Target, like this one: I hope that you and your family enjoy this recipe as much as we have!

The Ingredients: 2 cups fresh green beans, 1 cup water (plus more if needed), 1 skinned clove of garlic, 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper, 1/4 tsp. sea salt, 1/4 tsp. onion powder, 1/2 tsp. Flavor Mate Salt-free Seasoning.

In a medium pot, place your steamer basket. Add water to pot until it just covers the bottom of the basket. Add your beans and the garlic clove to the basket. Place a lid securely on the pot and cook the beans over medium heat for about ten minutes. Use a slotted spoon of a pair of tongs to transfer the steamed beans to a small serving bowl. Add the spices and toss to combine. Serve warm with desired toppings or as is. Serves 4.

Just wait until you taste the amazing, fresh flavor of these green beans!
