Herbed Green Beans

Fresh green beans are one of our favorite in-season eats.

Adding a hint of basil makes them a delicious way to enjoy veggies!

Herbed Green Beans - From Mom

  • Green beans, washed and ends pinched
  • Dried Basil
  • Butter, optional


Boil your green (and wax!) beans for 10 minutes until crisp-tender.  Drain and return beans to pan.

If desired, add a little pad of butter to your beans.  Otherwise, just sprinkle with dried basil.

Serve warm.

  1. I love fresh veggie from the garden. I didn't plant green beans this year, so I go to the growers market, I have never thought of adding basil/ I will have to try that next time. Geri

  2. Fresh green beans from the farmers market are so awesome! I have never cooked them this way- I'll have to try it.

  3. They are very good at room temp with a little salt & pepper and olive oil & vinegar......

  4. Yum. We have lots of beans in the garden right now. I wish I could just pack up a bag of them and send them off to you to enjoy.

  5. This is right up my alley - easy! Thanks!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you; especially how you're finding JOY in your kitchen.
