Honey Mustard Glazed Green Beans

By: Trisha Mandes, MPHN, Director

Ingredients:

  •         1 lb fresh green beans
  •         1/2 C honey
  •         1/2 C stone ground mustard

Directions:

Put a pot of water on high on the stove with a steam basket on-top and a lid.  While water is coming to a boil, snap or cut the ends off the beans if need be.  Once water is boiling, add beans to steamer basket.  Make dressing while beans are steaming: in a medium mixing bowl add equal parts honey and mustard and mix evenly.  Taste and decide if you’d like to add a bit more honey or mustard depending on your taste preferences.  Set aside. Once beans are bright green and soft with a slight crunch, remove them with tongs and add to a large mixing bowl.  Pour the dressing on-top of the beans and toss until evenly coated.     

 

  1.  As salad dressing. This dressing is great tossed in a mixed greens salad with raisins, sliced apple, onion and celery.
  1.  As a dip.  Dip whole-grain pretzels or sweet potato or potato “fries” into the honey mustard.    Learn Trisha’s favorite way to cook and eat sweet potato fries that take less than 30 minutes to make here.
