Ever buy fresh green beans? Believe it or not, I have been dependent on canned or frozen green beans until recently. I discovered the easiest way to prepare fresh green beans, and because they stay firmer than canned or frozen, my kids devour them. First, rinse and drain those green beans.
Drain the excess water, add butter, salt and pepper, and put the lid back on till dinner. They soften up a tiny bit more. And then, devour and enjoy.
