Green Beans are just so awesome made this way. Even my second daughter Pecan would eat this, and she absolutely hates green beans. I like it with a little spice to it, but if you don't want it that way, you don't have to! Serves 4.
5 cups green beans, chopped
6 slices turkey bacon, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes (more or less, depends on your taste)
1 1/2 cups water
Get a pot and spray it with nonstick spray. Heat and add your turkey bacon, onion, garlic and saute for a couple minutes till onion is translucent and bacon is a little toasted. Add your red pepper flakes and water. Mix, and bring to a boil. Put heat on medium and let it simmer covered for about 10-15 minutes.
After that, add your green beans and mix well, making sure all the beans are coated. Cover and let simmer for about 20-25 minutes on medium heat. During last 5 minutes of cooking, take the cover off, set heat on high and burn off the excess liquid, leaving just a little in the bottom of the pot. Give it a last stir, and bring to the table.
1 point a serving. AWESOME! Totally great served with your favorite meats or stews!
