Tasty Tuesday

Green beans with Onion
submitted by Patty over at Mrs. John in Ghana

Good morning! Hope all is well for you and yours! Also hoping you had a wonderful time celebrating Christmas and New Years!
Here's the post!
I don't know about you, but after all the sugar and carbs of the holidays I'm ready to get back to healthy eating! Unfortunately....I'm not sure this qualifies!
Yes, these may be vegetables, but they are so tasty that you'll have to wonder about their nutritional value :)
Green beans with Onion (snappy title, isn't it!?!)
{slightly adapted from Rachael Ray}
1 Tbsp. extra-virgin iolive oil
1 Tbsp. butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 cup chicken broth (you can really use whatever kind you have!)
1 lb. trimmed fresh green beans
To a medium pan (you'll want to use a shallow rather than deep one!) over medium-high heat add oil, butter, and onion. Saute onion three minutes, add
broth and bring to a boil. Add beans, season with salt and let simmer 8-10 minutes, until tender.
The secret is to let that broth reduce until it is almost the consistency of gravy. This may take a little more than ten minutes, but it will be well worth it!
I'm not including a picture with this recipe, because honestly, these don't LOOK very yummy. They look like brown green beans....
Maybe I should change their name to brown beans.......but.....I don't think that sounds any better, do you?
