Yummy Green Beans!

A long time ago I started a new page called Yummy In The Tummy Recipes.  Since that day… and posting my first recipe…”I’m still married roast beef” I have done zero with it.  Yep! I can admit it! I’ve had a useless page floating around my website just waiting to lure you in and disappoint you.  But not any more!  I’m vowing to add to it often.  I mean it’s not like I’m a bean pole and never eat.  I love to eat and I love food.  And not to toot my horn too loudly but I can make a mean dish when I put my mind to it. So this week I’d like to start anew by adding one of my favorite side dish recipes. This is a great one for using at home or for when you have pot luck type meals that you need something that travels well.  Its great cold and warm so even if you have to travel distances and you beans cool down you still will have fantastic dish.

Yummy Green Beans

(Hay! My recipes my names.)


● 2-3 green onions, chopped fine (I like to use both ends of the onion, white and green)
● 1 clove garlic, minced
● 1/3 cup olive oil
● 3 tbsp. lemon juice (I love using 1/2 of a fresh lemon but concentrated juice will work too)
● 1 tsp. salt
● 1 tsp. dry mustard
● 1/4 tsp. dried basil
● 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
● 1/4 tsp. dried marjoram
● 1/4 tsp. Herbs de Provence (optional but it really adds to the flavor if you have it in your “herb stash”)
● 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
● 1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped (always better fresh but I’ll admit to using frozen and steaming them)


1. In a medium bowl, mix green onions, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, mustard, basil, oregano, marjoram, herbs de provence and pepper.
2. Place green beans in a steaming basket. Steam in a medium saucepan over boiling water 5 minutes, or to desired tenderness. (or use your preferred method of steaming)
3.  Place green beans in a medium serving dish. Pour dressing mixture over the beans. (If traveling with this dish put dressing mixture in a separate container and pour over beans once you get to your location. Easier and cleaner.)
4.  Toss dressing and beans lightly to cover.
5.  Eat
I wasn’t quite prepared for photos but here you can see them in a blown up photo of a baby shower I helped host.  (They’re green beans…you can’t miss em’) Like I said, this is my favorite dish to take to functions and my friends always love them and your friends and family will too.
Lastly, I want to send some special thanks to a friend of mine who gave me the kick in the butt I needed to get this page working again.  Thanks J! You rock and that’s why I started with the beans! Just for you!
