Are you ready for the best green bean recipe ever? I will admit I was always a “buy it in the can” kinda’ cook, but when we aimed to eat healthier that was one thing I changed and I rarely cook veggies out of a can or freezer anymore (tastes so much better fresh). It’s a perfect alternative to the traditional calorie laden green bean casserole you serve at Thanksgiving, or just a great side during the week for dinner. Even my kids love these.
You can add mushrooms or omit but the combination is a great one. Balsamic is also used which creates a great flavor to the green beans and a perfect side dish during the week or served at Thanksgiving or Christmas time. Forget the traditional green bean casserole year after year (especially if you’re looking for a healthier option), and give these baked green beans a whirl. There is nothing like fresh green beans, and this recipe is super easy.
There aren’t a lot of steps to this green beans recipe which is good because I’m always in a rush so believe me nothing is difficult to make on my site. You probably have everything you need at home, other than a bunch of fresh beans. Here’s what you need and a printable recipe to save for next time too.
