Chinese Garlic Green Beans – 1 Smart Point

Chinese Garlic Green Beans

Admittedly, when I’m indulging in Chinese takeout, the last thing I think about ordering is vegetables. The exception to this train of thought is Chinese-style Garlic Green Beans. The flavor is out of this world – who knew a green bean could taste so incredible!? Every time we order these, my kids tackle them with so much enthusiasm, that I decided this is a dish I need to try at home. My version is a lot less oily, therefore, lower in Smart Points than the restaurant version. And they are super easy to make, so it’s great having this recipe to rely on for a quick and reliable verge recipe that I know my kids will eat. Each serving is just 1 Smart Point, so this is absolutely guilt free!
