“My boyfriend cooked this for a dinner a couple of week ago. It was so tasty and tangy, that I could not believe that it was green beans (1 of my least favorite vegetables) Maybe it is because I like that lemony-tangy flavor, but I think it is a great and EASY way to give something extra to vegetables. Oh, he told me he got the recipe from the Stop & Shop website. I hope you all like it as much as I do. Try to exchange the broth and the lemon juice with instant lemon flavor iced tea (prepared as if you were going to drink it) for an extra flavor kick.”
