Ranch Green BeansPosted: January 14, 2013
I’m a little embarrassed to share this because it’s not really a recipe. But I want to post it because it was so easy and so good I don’t want to forget.
I really don’t like vegetables. Before I had kids, I never made them. Now that I have kids, I make them to set the good example, be the good parent, blah, blah, blah. I like making the frozen vegetables in the steam bags that you just throw in the microwave and you’re done. But they’re pretty blah, with no seasonings. I usually season them with butter and garlic salt. I’m trying to lose weight, so butter isn’t a great idea. I love ranch dressing, but that’s not so healthy either. When opening the spice cabinet, I saw a packet of ranch dressing mix. I opened the packet and and sprinkled some on the beans right when they got out of the microwave and were still a little wet with steam. It mixed into a nice flavorful coating on the beans. I enjoyed these beans so much I had seconds! Since I have leftover dressing mix, I’ll be trying it on other veggies this week, like broccoli.
