Green Beans with Lemon

Try this twist on green beans. According to the recipe, this dish serves 4 and each serving has only 16 calories! I’m going to alter it to 2 servings (it’s only 1/2 lb!) Yet,  still only 32 calories!
Green Beans with Lemon

1/2 pound green beans (or yellow wax beans)
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh flat-leafed parsley leaves (wash and dry before chopping)
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated lemon zest
freshly ground black pepper to taste 


Trim stems off beans and cook in boiling salted water until crisp-tender (2 minutes for haricots verts, thin, French bean, or 3 to 4 minutes for regular yellow wax or green beans). Drain.

Move to a bowl and toss beans with lemon juice, parsley, lemon zest, and pepper and season with salt.
