Green beans are good almost any way they are prepared. This green bean recipe combines sweet honey with rich zesty balsamic vinegar. It’s a terrific combination and one that is good for quick mid-week side dish or delicious enough for holiday company.
16 ounces green beans
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and green beans. Cover, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover, then stir in the vinegar, honey, onion powder, and salt and pepper, to taste. Cook to desired degree of doneness, about 4 to 6 minutes.
Transfer the beans to a serving bowl and serve.
