Any suggestions for making green beans more appealing?
Even though I love most vegetables, these are my least favorite so would love some ideas for spicing them up!!
All I know is that kids, though they don't realize, will eat green beans when they are hot and have butter, real butter, added and melted with them.
So, drain the beans if you are using canned, heat them, then when they are good and hot, add several tablespoons butter, and toss to melt and coat. Yum!
We use onions in our green beans. We also use butter when in them. If using canned beans, we cook them until they are almost completely dry.
With fresh beans we like cooking them with potatoes also, preferably new potatoes fresh from the garden with about half a pound of bacon.
Hi Suzie, I've got three thoughts on this one.
1. Take a fine black felt tip pen. Draw curly hair and happy smiley faces on them.
2. Take 1 cucumber and several hundred beans. Superglue beans to cucumber, spray yellow and pass off as mega corn on the cob.
3. Drop 1 bean in each ice cube holder and freeze. Wait till party is tanked up and then start to serve in drinks. Everybody will think it's some new sorta "dead worn tequila" and swallow the lot.
Just a few thoughts. I have many more, it just depends how many "beans" you need to get rid of,
My husband and I love green beans dolled up with melted butter (or margarine--they make some pretty reasonable butter-tasting ones these days...), and sprinkled with garlic pepper or lemon pepper.
Watch the salt content of those if you're on a sodium-restricted diet. They are available in salt-free forms, but you have to read the labels.
You can also just add a squeeze of fresh lemon to them with the butter and plain pepper, if you don't have the lemon pepper, and you can also crush fresh garlic and add that.
Fresh is always better than canned anyway.
I would steam them and top with melted butter, sea salt and a bit of seasoned rice vinegar. Add to stir fried zuchinni, summer squash and red bell pepper all sprinkled with bits of bacon.
everything tastes better with bacon!!!
I like to add black pepper, crushed red peppers, salt, and onion. I'm not much on eating vegetables, but this makes me go back for seconds!

I have noticed that many atheists and anti-Christians (as can be seen from the most active forums on Hubpages), have a huge distaste for Christianity primarily because of the contradiction between there being a loving God and an eternal hell-fire for those who do not do what he wants.From my study...

Guys, which do you find more appealing?a woman who is bold, with high self confidence and can lead as well as follow...or a woman who is timid, doesn't have much self confidence and can't make a move without your approval or guidance?

I just wrote a hub on improving your credit score and I would really appreciate some suggestions on how to make it look more appealing? What type of pictures would you suggest?Also it would be great to get some input on my conclusion. I don't know why it is so hard for me to end a hub....

So you've just joined Hub pages and you are looking through the forums and the Hubs. Will you try to find good quality articles and become a fan of those writers or will you look at a good quality pictures - say a sexy woman or man and become a fan of them based on their looks?
