I also tried another newish food this week. Its nothing new to alot of people but to me it is. Its the famous green beans, I hated them for the longest time. Let's just say I would eat the raw but cook them and it was a no go for me. I prefer most of my veggies raw to start with. But Tuesday meal plan called for cooked green beans so I thought to myself how can I try something new with these things? Something that isn't going to add alot of points to my Weight Watchers Schedule yet make them taste better maybe. So, I finally found a recipe and thought I would try it out. And to my surprise it was great, I actually enjoyed them and so did the husband, my kids on the other hand didn't! All I did was saute some garlic and olive oil, added my green beans, 2 tablespoons of soya sauce and some roasted almonds. Once they were done and plated, I sprinkled a few bacon bits on top of them and vala its a yummy side dish. Once again this is where the "Green" comes in in my title.
Is there any veggies that you have tried and at first never liked or hated and once trying them a new way, you really enjoyed? If so, please send a recipe on to me!!!! I am up for some food challenges.
