Herbed Green Beans

This is so simple you will wonder why you never thought of it before!  This simple recipe is sure to add a great dimension to your meal. You can easily change the herbs to match the main dish so you have a side dish that truly nods to the flavor and focal point of your meal.

I know this isn’t a full on Meatless Monday meal idea, but it is a great new vegetarian side dish that I thought would debut well on a day like today!

We were having Simple Feta Chicken for dinner and I was making some green beans and salad to go along with it. I was trying to think of something that could make the green beans pop a little more. Of course butter and extra salt always comes to mind, right? Well, I wanted to go a little different direction and see how it would turn out.

I looked at my main dish and simply picked out some things in my spice cupboard that I thought would compliment the taste of it. This is what I ended up with.

Herbed Green Beans

1 pound green beans

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon onion salt

heaping 1/4 teaspoon of basil

Steam green beans (or cook them however you prefer). Sprinkle garlic powder, onion salt, and basil over top. Toss to coat.

Like I said, you can change the herb to compliment whatever meal you are having!
