Best Can Green Beans

Canned Green Beans do not have to taste like they came out of a can. 

Best Canned Green Bean Recipe http://recipesforourdailybread.com/2013/04/25/best-canned-green-beans/

 I prepare fresh green beans using this recipe often but it also works well when using canned green beans.  Cooking fresh green beans is not always an option.  The second best option for the most nutrients is frozen green beans, but sometimes I do not have either one on hand.  If I use canned green beans, the first thing I do is WASH them.  This is helpful for any canned food.  Canned foods are loaded in sodium.  This is especially important for me since I have issues with my blood pressure.  Be sure to wash all canned vegetables thoroughly before using them to remove a lot of the excess sodium.  This Green Bean Recipe is quick and easy.  I normally have all the ingredients on hand and better yet, my family loves them.

    Brittany,

    I cannot think of anything to substitute chicken broth. The closest thing would be water, but it has no flavor. I hope you get a chance to try these super easy and yummy green beans.

    Blessings and truly thank you for stopping by,

    I know this is an older post, but I have all of the ingredients but the chicken broth. Is there anything I can substitute?

    Love your blog…enjoyed cruising thru it! Lots of good recipes that I have pinned. One question, how long do you cook the green beans after adding all ingredients? Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to more recipes, etc.

    Linda,

    I did use the jar garlic in my green beans. It works well and saves me some time. Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I truly appreciate you supporting my blog.

    Hope you get this comment on this older post-saw it on Pinterest! Is the minced garlic fresh or do you get a good result with the jarred garlic? Thanks!

    Thank you for leaving me a message. I used 2 – 15 ounce cans of green beans which serves around 7 to 8 people. I hope this helps. Anytime you have a question, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Can you tell me how many servings the Green Bean dish is?

  • dianeroark November 6, 2013, 11:25 AM

    Gloria,

    You just fry the bacon. Leave the grease in the pan and crumble the bacon. You will add the bacon back into the beans. The rest is easy. Just mix in the rest of the ingredients.
    4 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled

    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    2 – 15 ounce can Green Beans or 2 pounds of fresh green beans (blanch fresh green beans for 5 minutes in salted water)
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup chicken broth
    I hope this helps.

    Do you drain the canned green beans?

  • dianeroark May 6, 2013, 11:53 AM

    Yes, Thanks for catching that. I will change it. Thank you also for stopping by and taking the time to post a comment. Blessings, Diane

  • Robin Mast May 5, 2013, 5:48 PM

    Sounds delicious. I am assuming it is 1/4 cup parmesan? It just says 1/4 parmesan.

    Sharon, You are so right about busy schedules. We are all swamped, especially if we have children. I just do not have the time to go to the store often enough to purchase fresh vegetables. So when I prepare canned green beans, these green beans are really tasty. Blessings, Diane and thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment.

  • Sharon May 2, 2013, 9:54 PM

    Sometimes you have to go canned when schedules are so busy. I often use canned green beans and canned corns, so if I can do something to make them taste a little more “homemade” then I definitely want to give it a try. Normally, I don’t do a lot with the canned vegetables. Thanks for offering a way to make them better.

    Thank you Teresa! Blessings, Diane
