Default Green Beans

Green Beans and Yellow Peppers

3/4 pound fresh green beans

Heat the water and beans to boiling in a nonstick skillet over high heat. Reduced heat, cover and simmer about 5 minutes or until tender. Drain excess water. Add the bell pepper and oil and heat over medium-high heat. Stir-fry about 2 minutes or until bell pepper is crisp-tender. Stir in marjoram and serve.

Balsamic Green Beans

1 can green beans (i prefer the french cut)
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
sprinkle of garlic powder

I am a truly lazy cook. I came up with this one while dieting because I bought a case of green beans at Costco and couldn't stand to eat them any longer by themselves. I toss the green beans in a microwave safe bowl, toss with the balsamic and garlic and nuke it in the microwave under the "veggie" button.
