Part of the goal of eating real food is to incorporate more vegetables and fruits into our meals. One way that I try to meet this goal is to have a green vegetable with supper. I came up with the idea of creating “Green Bean Kits” based off of my pizza kit idea.
Buy a big bag of fresh beans and snap the ends off. Freeze the ends along with other scraps to make veggie broth.
In a snack size bag, combine 1/4 cup of chopped onions and 2-3 tsp. of garlic. Freeze the bags together in order to create your “kit.”
When you want some green beans with supper, boil the beans for about 5-10 minutes. I like my beans crisp, so I only boil them for about 5 minutes. In another pan, brown the onion and garlic with a little salt. Once the beans are done boiling, add them to the skillet with the onions and garlic. Add salt and pepper as needed. Saute for about 5 minutes and then enjoy.
