Green Beans with Tarragon

Every good ham needs a side dish, and this recipe for Green Beans with Tarragon sounds perfect. Why? Besides being full of things I like, it sounds like it will be quick and easy too.

This is my husband Jack’s go-to recipe for preparing green beans. There’s just something about the green beans paired with tarragon and the light garlic seasoning that really enhances the flavor of the green beans.

The Ingredients

This recipe has just a few ingredients, and I had most on hand. All I had to shop for was the produce. The fresh tarragon and green beans were only a few dollars. It actually felt a little weird to only need two inexpensive items for part of my Christmas dinner, but I’m not complaining.

The Process

My tarragon green beans were ready in just 15 minutes. I put a 4-quart pot of water on the stove to boil while I snapped the stems off the green beans. The water wasn’t quite ready by then, so I went ahead and mixed the rest of the ingredients in a ramekin so they would be ready.

The water was boiling by that time, so I put the green beans in for 6 minutes (I like them pretty tender). Once they were ready, all I had to do was drain them, put them back into the pot, and stir in the butter and seasonings. That’s it!

Tarragon and garlic take humble green beans from an okay side to a side you’ll be craving! This simple recipe has only a few ingredients and is ready in just 15 minutes. I plan to make this dish a regular on my menu, though I will probably substitute dried tarragon to save money and avoid waste. Not having anything to use the extra tarragon was the only slightly negative thing I can say about this recipe, but that’s just poor planning on my part.
