Green Bean Kit

Part 100_2823of 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.
