Easy and delicious I've added a red bell pepper, 1 garlic clove and a tiny bit of water after the first few minutes of stirring the beans and all together. Yummy, nutri-licious result :)

This was unbelievably good and easy. Of course summer green beans makes a difference, but the flavors were lovely. I did use a red onion and the colors were lovely too.
