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.
