      Have you ever found yourself in a side dish rut?  I know I have.  We tend to eat the same handful of vegetables over and over and I’m not always creative with how I fix them. This green bean recipe is sure to break you out of that rut. They are easy, flavorful and get tender crisp with almost no effort at all. Have your pressure cooker do the work for you!

      So when I saw fresh green beans on sale,  I was excited to get them.  We normally only have fresh beans during the summer and from our own garden. More so, I was determined to do something a little different.

      Growing up we always had them with bacon, onion and new potatoes. They were always delicious alongside a steak and slices of fresh tomatoes still warm from the garden.

     I still make them with bacon and onions more than any other way.  But I also love them simply flavored with soy sauce and garlic.

      Other than prepping the green beans, this is practically a hands off recipe. And snapping the green beans is worth the payoff!

      If you don’t have fresh green beans lying around but you still want to freshen up your veggie routine, I have a few other ideas for you.  My slow cooker creamy corn is always a hit.

     As we head into spring a creamy pea salad is always welcome and my version is lightened up a bit.  Or if you haven’t tried asparagus in a salad (with bacon!) you’ll have to give that a try as well!

I really like it for hard boiled eggs and making shredded chicken. I also like it for rice. I'm excited to try more things!
