Buttered Green Beans

Buttered Green Beans

[side dish] [gf]
Steam fresh green beans in the oven. When you cook veggies yourself, they taste better!
colander, kitchen scissors, 1½-quart (1.5 L) glass or ceramic baking dish, measuring cups, foil, measuring spoons, baking spatula or wooden spoon
4 big handfuls green beans (about 3 cups/750 mL)
⅓ cup (80 mL) water
1 tsp (5 mL) butter
pinch of each salt and pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Before you cook the green beans, you need to wash and trim them. To do that, put them in a colander and run under cold water. Drain. To trim, use kitchen scissors to snip off the stems from the beans (throw the stems away), then snip each bean in half, crosswise, so you end up with two shorter sections.
  3. Put the beans into the baking dish. Add the water. Cover the baking dish tightly with a lid or foil.
  4. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the beans are tender.
  5. Get help removing the dish from the oven. With a baking spatula or wooden spoon, stir in the butter, salt, and pepper.
Makes 4 servings.
