By Avera

Combining green beans with a hint of ginger and peanut butter adds flavor to this otherwise bland side.

Gingered Green Beans
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen green beans

  • 1 packet chicken broth granules

  • 1 bunch scallion (6 to 7)

  • 2 large cloves of garlic

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce, low sodium

  • 1 teaspoon SPLENDA┬« Granular

  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter

  • 1/8 teaspoon sesame oil

  1. In a 2-quart microwave-safe casserole dish, combine green beans and broth granules. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, slice white bulbs of scallions into rings and mince garlic.

  3. In small bowl, combine ginger, soy sauce and SPLENDA® Granular. Add scallion rings and garlic. Set aside.

  4. Remove green beans from microwave and uncover. Pour sauce over beans and stir. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes.
