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
