Lemon Garlic Green Beans: Tasty, Quick & Easy Holiday Dish

If you are looking for an easy tasty vegetable dish at your holiday table, I suggest Lemon Garlic Green Beans. While green bean casserole is a holiday favorite, this simple delicious recipe is better for you, has less calories and is free of common allergens. 

I keep it simple by buying organic frozen green beans and cook them according to the package directions. In a separate pan, I sauté garlic, add some lemon zest, then add the drained green beans. Mix together, and heat thoroughly. In just minutes, you have a special dish your family will enjoy anytime during the year.
