Since I bumped Christmas Cookie Week until next week (due to the internet being on the fritz during our little ice storm whose remnants are still hanging out), I thought it might be fun and timely to share some recipes that would be good to bring to a holiday get-together, potluck or even your family’s own Christmas Dinner.

So. Green beans.

Green beans have always been one of my favorite vegetables, and I am always looking for new ways to cook them, especially since Winston and I can easily devour an entire batch of them in an evening. (True story.)

This recipe came from drizzling some homemade salad dressing atop some green beans a few years ago in an attempt to get finish off the dressing and give the beans an added savory quality. I’ve tinkered with that original idea ever since, adding a few different products in the hopes to change it up a bit. Not because the original wasn’t good, but because I sometimes just like to eat something different with some unique flavors. And, in the last batch of tinkers, I added the zing that seals the deal.

These green beans are simple and easy to make, requiring little-to-no hands-on time, and then you just pop them in the oven, bake until the beans are crisp tender, then enjoy.

    Green beans are the best! I usually do a simple garlic saute, but I love the idea of punching it up with sriracha sauce. Yay!

      Green beans really ARE delightful, and I love that you generally do a simple garlic saute with them. I’m gonna have to try that next time because I love me some garlic.

    We made these for dinner last night and they were super tasty! Very flavorful without being too spicy :). We struggle to find low-calories ways to punch up our veggies – these will be a new staple!

    • Erin

      Mary, so glad these turned out tasty for y’all and that they’re going to become a staple for veggies in the future! I love making stuff that’s crazy flavorful without being incredibly spicy, so I’m happy it fit the bill for you, too!

    I added a little honey to the sauce to give it a little hint of sweetness. Super good

    • Erin
