I liked these beans, especially for the ease of prep. I don't normally use the microwave to cook my veggies, or any food for that matter, but I wanted to follow the recipe exactly. Keep in mind ...

5.12.18 Just 2-1/2 minutes in my microwave pot, a little butter and chicken bouillon, some chopped garlic, and on the table. Love side dishes like this one, and it’s delish!

Very tasty, easy and quick. Thank you for the recipe.

these are amazing, easy green beans. lots of flavor. my new favorite way of having green beans. yum.

Wonderful...! I live on a boat and have few ways of cooking and microwave is one...especially fresh green beans. Only added more garlic and was delicious. Will try with other fresh veggies...yum...

Use only half the chicken broth. Too thin with 2 cups even after cooking time.

I diced a fresh garlic clove, but otherwise followed this basic recipe. Fresh tasting, quick, and easy - what's not to love?
