Green Beans and Carrots Recipes

Updated on July 15, 2013

Green Beans and Carrots

This is an easy recipe for green beans and carrots, with just a few instructions to follow. If you have a spare 30 minutes you can whip this combo up. I love to keep a large jar of hot and spicy vegetables in the fridge for snacking. The veggies keep for several weeks and add a tasty touch to lunch, dinner or an afternoon snack. For those on a diet, these vegetables really satisfy your hunger and possess few calories. There are several ways to make these veggies, but I have found my own formula that both my husband and I enjoy. You can also try this recipe with cauliflower, zucchini and sweet peppers.
