Garlic Seasoned Green Beans

There is no shame in using frozen vegetables instead of fresh. In fact, frozen produce often contains higher quantities of naturally occuring vitamins and other good stuff because it gets frozen at the peak of ripeness, just after being picked versus the "fresh" produce that is offered in most grocery markets that is sometimes picked prematurely and left to ripen on a shelf. Unfortunately, for a creative kitchen, frozen vegetables cannot perform in the same way their never-been-cold counterparts can. This does not mean there is no way to spice them up, however. Here is a super simple recipe that contains basic spices for maximum flavor impact using frozen vegetables.


1 1lb bag frozen green beans
1 Tbsp grass-fed butter (or coconut oil)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
salt, to taste


Boil green beans until cooked, but not mushy.
Drain water and add butter and spices.
Mix well and serve.
