Recipe For Green Beans and Shallots


Eating healthy can be very expensive. Fresh fruit and vegetables can really eat into your food budget if you want anything that isn’t on sale that week. I often supplement with canned and frozen. It is the only realistic way to feed a family of seven on a budget. Many of my long time readers will have noticed that I often put green beans on a dinner plate. More often than not, they are straight out of the can with nothing extra. That gets really boring for me.

Because I am using a cheap can of vegetables, I am willing to splurge a little on a bag of shallots. One little bag is good for three or four dishes, so in the end, the expense is worth it. In this case, I used only one shallot, but it was enough to give these green beans a big burst of flavor. I served them with baked tilapia which will post later.
