Variations of easy green beans:

  • more spice-extra cayenne pepper would give this side dish more of a kick! You can also add hot sauce to make it more spicy.
  • add mushrooms-some people like the flavor combo of beans and mushrooms! Add in some mushrooms to the microwaveable bowl before cooking.
  • omit french fried onions-fried onions really top this vegetable dish off, but if you are trying to cut calories, they are not a necessity.
  • more garlic-you can always add more garlic!
  • add bacon-cooked bacon mixed in these microwaved green beans is also tasty if you want to make this a nonvegetarian recipe.
