Seasoned Green Beans

2 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. garlic, peeled and minced
1 green onion, chopped or 1 cup chopped onion
1 cup low sodium vegetable broth
1 sweet red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 tsp. dried basil (optional)
1/2 tsp. Mrs. Dash Table Blend
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 (20-oz.) pkg. frozen green beans or 1 pound fresh green beans

Heat skillet to medium-low and saute garlic and onion with 2
Tbsp. water for a minute. Then add green beans and cook for a
minute until beans turn bright green.

Add the broth, chopped red pepper, basil, Mrs. Dash and black
pepper. Turn heat to low and cover with a lid, leaving lid
cracked to allow steam to escape. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or
until liquid evaporates and beans are fairly soft, yet still a
bit crisp.

You can add more broth during the cooking process, but don't be
afraid to let it all cook away so the onions and peppers can
caramelize.

Transfer to a serving bowl.

Makes 6 servings.
