I love green beans! They are wonderful raw as a snack, steamed or fancied up like this peanut buttery dish.

Green beans are a bit of a little power house as far as stringy little green veggies are concerned. They are low in fat, high in potassium, low net carbs and a decent amount of protein.

Beans are readily available in all grocery stores and very easy to grow. I am sure we all remember growing beans in grade school as a year end project. They grow easily and very quickly in what seems like the most unlikely places, a styrofoam cup.

If you have a whole crowd of people this recipe can be easily doubled and makes a lovely addition to a potluck table.

There are 5.3g net carbs, 4.8g protein and 3 Weight Watchers points per serving.
