  1. I'm always looking for new ways to cook green beans. My parents have a huge garden with green beans coming out of their ears. So my Mom flash cooks them then freezes quart bags of them. I get a good 12-15 bags of green beans from her every year. I'll be trying this one for sure!

  2. My girls love green beans, but I need some fresh ways to prepare them. This sounds like a good one for my family. We tend to love salt, so salt AND soy sauce sounds like a good combo for us. Thanks for the recipe! Found you on VB! Tracy

  18. I think green beans are the best liked veggie at our house. The recipe sounds good except that I am in a low sodium diet so salt and soy sauce would be too much for me.

  21. yum never thought of cooking it in olive oil after boiling them. i love garlic powder, we use it on A LOT of recipes. low sodium soy sauce is what we usually buy and it tastes great.

  24. I never even thought of combining garlic and green beans, but now that I'm thinking about it I'm salivating a bit. It would go great with mashed potatoes and maybe some garlic bread.

  29. Green beans are a favorite in my home. I am really excited about this recipe. I like that it will "enhance" the bean flavor, but not overwhelm it. I am going to have a zillion (give or take a few) beans in my garden this year, so this recipe will be used!
