Sauteed Spicy Greens

Yum
Sauteed Vegetables


Its been a while since I have added a side dish recipe to go along with some of the main entrees I have posted, I figured a side dish that is quick, easy and full of nutritional value that goes along with any entree from fish, to meat, to chicken would be ideal to add at this time. Green beans are one of my favourite vegetables, they are packed calcium and potassium and are a good source of vitamin A, C and K. When I was growing up my family always made sure that we had a side of something healthy even if it included things that I enjoyed eating. This green bean recipe is all about steaming and then a quick sautee. You will need a basket that fits a pot add a bit of water into the pot to start the steaming process of the greens, once they are tender to your liking, you can throw out the water and cook/sautee the greens in the same pot, this keeps things a little cleaner. I decided to use ingredients that my taste buds would enjoy but you may like to experiment as thats what cooking is all about.
