Steamed and Sautéed Green Beans

Here is a quick vegetable recipe.  I have found that fresh green beans sauté much better when steamed first.  Steam the green beans until they are almost to your desired texture.  Enjoy!


Steamed and Sautéed Green Beans

1 lb fresh green beans, ends trimmed and halved
1 T reduced-sodium soy sauce*
½ T butter, margarine or non-dairy substitute
½ t garlic powder
½ t onion powder
¼ t freshly ground black pepper

Steam green beans in a steamer pan for about 10 min or until tender when pricked with a fork.  Once steamed, put in a large sauce pan or skillet and add remaining ingredients.  Sautee on high heat and gently stir until green beans are evenly coated.  Serves 8

* For those on a gluten-free diet, be sure to use a gluten-free soy sauce.
