Works for Me - Flavoring Green Beans

I seem to be on a food kick with my Works for Me Wednesdays. You'd think I actually COOK or something!

Not all of us are blessed with canned-in-mama's-kitchen green beans. (YUM!) Canned-in-a-factory green beans just don't taste the same. At all.

Well, here's a little tip that my friend Melba shared with me a few years ago:

Use chicken broth or bouillon when you cook them. I was almost ashamed that I didn't know this already. It's so easy! And tasty? Yes, ma'am!

So try it out. Those picky little eaters in your house just might eat their beans!

That's what Works for Me today!


  1. Beth,
    I add beef bouillon to my green beans and have happy eaters around the table. I will have to try the chicken bouillon. Thank you for the suggestion.

  2. I have to confess, I use velveeta cheese, this sounds much healthier!!!

  3. I am going to try this - I use this trick with rice, but it never occurred to me to try it with veggies. Sounds great.

  4. I have never heard this, sounds yummy! I will have to try it! I posted about green beans today, too!

  5. I want to make this work for me too! Thanks for sharing this great tip.

  6. No unfortunately it is not a real tree. :(


So, what do you have to say?
