This is a simple, easy recipe to get your kids involved in making vegetables.
  • 1 pound green beans or haricot vert, trimmed and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1½ tablespoons lemon juice (about a half of one lemon)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Optional Garnish:
  • Sliced almonds or pine nuts, sautéed lightly in olive oil until lightly brown
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced and sautéed in olive oil. When shallots are tender and translucent serve on top of green beans and add ½ cup of diced tomatoes.
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  1. Cook beans in 4-quart saucepan of boiling water for about 5 minutes. Beans should be bright green, tender, but still have a crunch when done!
  2. Drain water.
  3. Add butter, lemon juice, and season to taste.
  4. Garnish if desired.
We recommend using organic ingredients when possible.

You may also choose to steam your green beans. If so, place the green beans in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water. Cover, and cook until tender but still firm, about 8-10 minutes.
