Today, I’m sharing a delicious side dish that can accompany your Christmas dinner – or that you can enjoy with any other meal!
These zesty green beans are seasoned with garlic, ginger, lemon, and crushed red pepper, which is optional, so they are sure to bring some big flavors to your table.
Did you know that green beans are one of the best food sources of folic acid, vitamins A and K, and fiber? So this is a great addition to any meal for a healthy, alkaline side that tastes as good as it makes you feel.
