Recipe By Jeni Pittard, Savory Spice customer


4 servings

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.

Serving Suggestions

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