Green Beans with Mustard & Cider Vinegar

Wake Up Your Beans!

I am always looking for new ways to brighten up green beans.  Here is a tangy, sweet recipe to add to your recipe box.

Green Beans with Mustard & Cider Vinegar

Serves 4

3 Tbs honey
1½ Tbs whole-grain mustard
1/3 cup cider vinegar
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 Tbs olive oil
1 shallot, sliced
1 lb green beans, trimmed
2 Tbs chopped fresh parsley

In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper; set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring often, for 2 minutes.

Add the green beans and cook, stirring often, for 1 minute.

Whisk the honey mixture again and pour it over the beans. Cook, tossing the beans occasionally so they cook evenly, for 3 minutes or until they are tender but still have some bite.

Sprinkle with parsley.
