Default Cheesy Green Beans

This is a great side dish. I didn’t have the frozen green beans it requested. Instead, I had a mini can of green beans, which I used. I drained the can of green beans really well and then added them to the sautéed onions and garlic. I heated it through for a few more minutes until warmed through. I added the cheese once I transferred it to my plate.

½ Teaspoon margarine/butter
1 Tablespoon finely chopped onion
1 Small garlic clove, minced
1 Cup Green Giant frozen cut green beans
1 Tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese

1.) Melt margarine/butter in small nonstick saucepan or skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until onion begins to brown. Remover from saucepan; cover to keep warm.

2.) In same saucepan, cook beans as direction on package; drain. Add onion mixture, cook until thoroughly heated. Add cheese; toss gently to mix.

Be sure to use fat reduced cheese and sautee in olive oil rather than margarine or butter to make this OK for South Beach.
Change isn’t easy. But if you don’t change, you stay the same, and where’s the fun in that?
