bean beans

Around our place, green beans tend to be the veggie side we eat the most, so I'm always looking for new ways to prepare them. Here's a great variation that tastes delicious:

Green Beans w/ Bread Crumbs


* 1 pound fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
* 1/2 cup water
* 1/4 cup Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs
* 1/4 cup olive oil
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
* 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
* 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


1. Combine green beans and 1/2 cup water in a medium pot. Cover, and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium, and let beans cook for 10 minutes, or until tender. Drain well.
2. Place beans in a medium serving bowl, and mix in bread crumbs, olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano and basil. Toss mixture until the beans are coated. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.
