Teriyaki Green Beans
These Teriyaki Green Beans are VERY TASTY and excellent for a quick weeknight dinner side dish, or an addition to your weekly food prep meals, but also impressive enough to make for your holiday guests this upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas season.
I served these alongside garlic chicken tenders and brown rice the other night for my family and everyone really enjoyed these beans!
In addition to being versatile and delicious, green beans contain a wealth of nutrients.
Green beans provide some of our daily protein requirements. They also contain vitamins like vitamins A, C, K, B6, and folic acid.
Green beans are a good source of minerals such as calcium, iron, manganese, potassium, and copper. They also contain that much-needed fiber!
