Until this week, I have never, ever tried fresh green beans before. Please don’t judge me.
Actually, until this week I detested green beans. This was mainly because I have only ever eaten canned green beans. Growing up, my family pretty much lived on canned veggies. I think this is the reason why I detest most vegetables.
Canned veggies are soft, mushy, and flavorless. But I decided to give fresh green beans a shot. After all, they have to taste different from the canned variety, right? I am glad that I tried them. I roasted them in the oven with a little olive oil and some salt and pepper. Mmm . . . tasty. I will eat these again and again.
And yes, I dipped them in ketchup. Everything’s better with ketchup.
I will never buy another can of green beans again. Except for when my husband wants them of course. He will only eat canned green beans and that is just about the only vegetable he likes. Typical.
