How to Boil Green Beans

Green Beans - CookingWithKimberly.comGreen beans are a staple side dish, in my humble opinion.

They are super easy to prepare and cook, are tasty, healthy, and readily available most of the year in grocery stores.

Green beans are also a great vegetable to grow in your home garden, cutting down on grocery costs, as they are pretty easy to grow.

Enjoy these green beans alongside beef, chicken, pork and fish dishes alike, and afford them a place at your Holiday feast!
