Green Beans with Herb Butter

With fresh green beans everywhere it seemed like a good time to share this recipe. I love them  and can’t get enough this time of year.  I like this preparation because it adds flavor and a nice twist without covering up the flavor of the beans. Fast and easy to make, too, which is always a plus.




Green Beans with Herb Butter


1 lb. Green beans, washed and trimmed

¼ c. butter

¾ c. minced onion or shallots, I used shallots

1 clove garlic, minced

2 T. chopped parsley

¾ t. salt

1/2 t. each oregano and basil


Boil or steam beans until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Meanwhile, start sauce. Heat butter in skillet and add shallots or onion and garlic. Cook 5 minutes then add seasonings and cook, covered, 5 minutes more. Toss beans with sauce.  Serves 4.
