This is a simple way to dress up green beans, one of the most versatile of vegetables. I love my green beans a bit on the crisp side and this recipe increases the “fresh” flavor with a tangy lemon and chive kick.
- Fresh green beans
- Chives (about 1/4 cup chopped)
- 1/2 Lemon
- Olive Oil
Cook the green beans by your preferred method – I think steaming is the best method for retaining flavor and keeping crisp. While they cook, chop your chives. You can also use kitchen shears to simply cut over the beans if you prefer. Mix beans, chives, S/P, a dash or two of olive oil and squeeze the 1/2 lemon atop – mix well and top with fresh lemon zest.
