Recipe By Jeni Pittard, Savory Spice customer

Recipe By Jeni Pittard, Savory Spice customer

Simmering green beans in broth infuses them with an extra layer of flavor. They're quickly finished with a bit of butter or olive oil and seasoned with one of our customer favorites, Capitol Hill Seasoning. This is an addictively delicious side for a holiday feast or a simple weeknight meal.

Makes a great side for a holiday meal. Use as a bed for grilled fish or chicken.
