LOW CARB CHINESE GREEN BEANS

Ingredients:
  • 8 ounce bag frozen green beans (or 14 ounces if you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1/2 small onion, diced fine
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger
  • 2 teaspoons sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
Directions:
  1. Place frozen green beans in microwaveable dish, sprinkle with bouillon, cover and microwave on high for about 4 minutes.
  2. Combine green onions, onions, garlic, ginger, Splenda, and soy sauce in small bowl; mix well.
  3. Pour sauce mixture over green beans and mix well. Cover and microwave on high for 2 to 4 more minutes or until well heated.
Using 8 ounces of beans, it is approximately 4 servings with 5 net carbs per serving. 14 ounces of beans would make about 6 servings with the same 5 net carbs per serving.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
