Growing up my mother used to have a rule that we had to have at least one green thing on our dinner plate. I have no problem with this, but the universe of green things my carnivore eats is minuscule, so we don't always follow this rule (don't tell). However, we both agree on this side item. Green beans are a staple in my house. I love them fresh, but I do hate the prep work. I have found a great product in Costco's freezer aisle to save me some time though. They have a giant bag (of course) with smaller bags inside of prepped green beans. You can just open a bag and toss it directly into a wok. If you do use these, be sure to put them in your wok on low heat and let them defrost some before you add the oil. In my house, we use sesame oil, but olive oil will work just fine. Just a tablespoon of two will do. I also season them with minced garlic (or powder will be fine in a pinch), kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. Heat them thoroughly, but make sure they are still firm and crisp when you put them on the plate. And, then feel good about getting your carnivore to eat something green!
Last night we had green beans and boiled potatoes that I tossed with butter and rosemary. My carnivore grilled a chicken breast and I heated up a fake chicken patty in the oven along with some crescent rolls. A simple but satisfying dinner for two.
