Comment on this recipe

Easy, delicious


1 bag (1 pound) frozen, french-cut green beans
1 can (13 1/2 ounces) unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 1/2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 large garlic cloves, minced


Place the green beans plus 3 tablespoons water in a microwave safe casserole. Cover and microwave on high for 7 1/2 minutes, stirring beans midway through cooking time. Meanwhile, pour the coconut milk into a medium saucepan. On low heat, whisk in the peanut butter until smooth. Then stir in the soy sauce and minced garlic. Drain beans, spoon into a warm server bowl, pour peanut sauce over beans and serve. Serves 6.
