(34) Dijon Green Beans

This is a modification of a recipe I tried last week. It needed something, and the onions were the secret. These are light and easy to make. These beans will go into the regular rotation!

Dijon Green Beans

Yield: 4 generous servings
Source: An Amy original

1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
1 medium onion, thinly sliced (about 1c)
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
Salt & pepper to taste

1) Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until the beans are fork tender - about 8 minutes.

2) Drain beans and return the empty pot to the stove. Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute until brown and tender, about 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat. Add Dijon mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Stir 30 seconds until combined with onions. Return green beans to the pan and stir until well combined with the onions.
