Green Beans with Sunflower Seeds Recipe Photo - Diabetic Gourmet Magazine Recipes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons shelled sunflower seeds
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano, or 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano


Directions

  1. Snap the ends off the beans. If they are very young, leave the beans whole; if large, break the beans into 2-inch lengths. Place the beans in a saucepan; add 1 cup water and the onion, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil; reduce the heat to a simmer, and cook about 8 minutes, until the beans are crisp-tender; drain.
  3. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds and oregano over the beans. Toss lightly to mix.
