Don’s Special Green Beans

I absolutely turned my nose up at this recipe, but believe me, once eaten (and shared at a dinner), there is no other way to eat them. We had skinny beans, not the bigger, fatter ones, and they are awesome.


  • large handful of beans (enough for however many people serving)
  • 2 tbsp. smooth peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, sliced thin- then mashed
  • 1 tp. butter
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 2 oz. cashews

Par-boil the beans for 2 minutes in hard boiling water, drain and let cool.

Whisk  the peanut butter, olive oil and soy sauce until smooth.

In a frypan, saute the garlic in the butter and olive oil for about 30 seconds at a very hot temperature . Add the beans, cashews, dressing and toss to coat well.

Serve…OMG! these are absolutely awesome. Hmmm…is that all we made?
