What can you just throw together to make a tasty side dish? Try this one:
A bag of frozen green beans, or about two cups fresh ones.
2-3 tbsp brown sugar
2-3 tbsp butter
salt to taste
Cover and steam. Stir to dissolve sugar.
(You can also throw in two or three strips of cooked, crumbled bacon. Bacon makes everything better!!!)
Careful not to overcook. Vegetables should still be a little crunchy, but with a warm, sweet flavor via the butter and sugar.
