Oregano Green Beans

Standard

gbeans

I picked up a pound of beautiful organic green beans recently and paired them with tomatoes and feta cheese in this recipe from Southern Living. Nothing but flavor in this dish! Sauteed onions and garlic with green beans, diced tomatoes and seasonings simmered in chicken stock. A little spritz of fresh lemon juice and a sprinkling of crumbled feta finished it off perfectly. I was afraid that the amount of onions and tomatoes would be too much for the green beans, but my guys polished off all of the remnants very happily.
