Sauteed Green Beans with Oregano

July 25, 2014
Sauteed Green Beans with Fresh Oregano are a quick, easy, and flavorful way to enjoy those wonderfully fresh summer green beans.  Get your fill of summer's produce before it's gone!

I've been trying to better about eating more veggies lately.  See, I'm a carb addict, so sometimes veggies get bypassed for ... well ... let's just say for less healthy options.  But I am  trying to be better.  I swear.

Fortunately, summer's fresh produce and garden bounty make eating more veggies lots easier!  And how quickly you can get these sauteed fresh green beans with oregano on the table helps, too.

I've been very fortunate this summer to be kept in pretty constant supply of fresh herbs from my Mom's house.  Every time I've gone to see her, she's sent me home with a bag of freshly cut basil, parsley, oregano, chives, and mint.


So yes, those fresh herbs have certainly helped me on my quest to eat more veggies, too.

Like with these fresh green beans sauteed with fresh oregano, courtesy of my Mom's herb garden and her friend's garden's bean crop.  Such a yummy, quick and easy combination.

With the help of summer's fresh produce, hopefully I can keep up my more-veggie-eating streak.  And find some resolve for after summer's produce is gone.

But fortunately, I've still got time before I have to worry about that.
