Garlic Green Beans Recipe
1 lb green beans, ends trimmed
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp red-wine vinegar
1 tbsp walnut or olive oil
1/8 tsp salt (optional)
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
I tried this recipe from Jane Brody's "Good Food Gourmet" for
Thanksgiving last year and my family really loved it! Steam beans for
5 to 7 minutes or until tender crisp. Rinse briefly under cold water
to preserve color, but do not chill. Cover and keep warm. In a large
bowl, combine garlic and remaining ingredients. Add warm green beans
and toss until well coated. If desired, you can reheat in microwave
before serving. If you don't want such a strong flavor of garlic,
simmer the unpeeled cloves of garlic in a cup of water for 5 minutes
before peeling and mincing. I don't think the original recipe is too

Some reduced carb diet tips:
* Use soy flour or soy baking mix.
When you have to use flour for baking, repalce it with soy flour or a soya baking mix such as Atkins baking mix. In most situtations, you may change your favorite recipes that use standard wheat flour to use these.
* Replace sugar with splenda.
Most recipes that require sugar can be changed to make use of splenda instead. It has a different density so you will have to expirement with it and it may not work for every recipe, but it gives very good results once you get the measurements right.
