Seasoned Green beans -Microwave Cooking


The easiest way to cook green beans is to cook them in a microwave. Also, cooking green beans in the microwave is healthier than boiling them in a pot.  When you boil green beans in the pot of the stove, the nutrients end up in the cooking water, and then get poured down the drain. 
When you use the microwave to cook green beans, you don’t need to deal with the boiling pot of water! Microwave is a great tool for cooking most vegetables so the vitamins stay inside the beans and end up in your mouth!

Ingredients
  • Fresh Green beans – ½ kg
  • Water -1/4 cup
  • Butter -2 tbsp.
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Lemon Juice
  • Olive oil -1 tbsp.
  • Garlic powder -2 tsp
  • Soy sauce -1 tsp

Method

1. Wash the green beans and cut off the stringy ends. Put the green beans in a microwave-safe dish that has a cover.Cover the dish and put in the microwave. Microwave the green beans on High for 4 minutes.

 
2. Taste the green beans to see if they are cooked enough. If they are too tough, keep microwaving more for 1 minute at a time until they cooked to your liking.


3. Before serving cooked green beans, sprinkle them with salt and pepper.  I also love to drizzle them with olive oil and vinegar. It tastes amazing.

Notes
Remember that the green beans will soften quite a bit on their own after you take them out of the microwave (this is because they continue cooking on their own while they are still hot).  So when you take out the beans, they should be slightly undercooked if you want them to end up crispy.  Overcooking the beans will result in a mushy texture.  It’s better to undercook the green beans than to overcook!
