Excellent side dish. Better than the same old green beans.

I looooove these. I used canned green beans, and decided that next time I make them, I'll let them soak in the mixture before serving.

I added lemon zest for more lemony taste & used 1 Tbs olive oil instead of butter. This was so good I tried it with broccoli too. Both were even more sensational the next day.
