Green beans, aka string beans are a healthy addition to any meal. They're a tasty way to get some veggies out on the dinner table, and are a hallmark dish of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
The green beans in this recipe are cooked in two parts: first blanched, then sauteed. You can easily blanch the beans ahead of time, put them in the fridge, and then combine them with the other ingredients and saute them just before you're ready to serve.
