Honey Balsamic Green Beans

We had a 'mess' of green beans from our garden and made these for the first night my parents were here last week. We tripled the sauce and could have had more sauce. These beans have great flavor.

Honey Balsamic Green Beans

  • 16 ounces green beans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
    Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium heat. Add the beans and blanch them for 2 minutes. Immediately remove the beans from the water and add them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Drain.

    In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and green beans. Cover, and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover, then stir in the vinegar, honey, onion powder, and salt and pepper, to taste. Cook to desired degree of doneness, about 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer the beans to a serving bowl and serve.
