When it comes to foods I adore, green beans top my list.
After that would be a really great steak with horseradish, blue cheese, asparagus.
Not kidding. You won’t find cookies, chips or even french fries (number six) on my top five list of great food.
You will find green beans, and these green beans are sautéed in sweet Asian sauce, making them the perfect side dish to serve with your favorite chicken or pork dish.
I think I ate the whole pan by myself. It’s a good thing cake doesn’t top my list of favorites, or I’d really be in trouble!

- 1 cup mushroom , sliced
- 1 cup low fat chicken broth

What’s good for me in this dish?
Green beans are high in vitamins K, A, and C, as well as manganese and fiber. Vitamin K is important for bone health, and a serving of green beans provides your daily requirements for this crucial vitamin. They also provide protection against atherosclerosis and diabetic heart disease.Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory effects that may reduce the symptoms of asthma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
