Not bad, I would have enjoyed some sesame seeds on them but I didn't have them so I will do it next time. It was good!

Really tasty sidedish, but I had to use bagged green beans. It turned out nicely though because I was going to half the recipe anyway, and I didn't have to de-end the beans.

It's such a good change from regular steamed vegetables!

I also used frozen green beans and it was delicious!

I used Agave instead of artificial sweetner, a little cooking spray instead of olive oil. It turned out simply simply wonderful. AND I avoided a Chinese buffet which is worth 5 more points in my opinion. :-)
