Green Beans with Rays of Sunshine
1 pound fresh or frozen green beans
1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and cored
1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup minced onion
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Steam green beans 20-22 minutes or until tender crisp (you may also boil in a large saucepan 8-10 minutes). While green beans are cooking, shred yellow pepper in a food processor (use shredder attachment) or by hand. Drain any liquid, and set aside.
When green beans are done cooking, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and yellow pepper. Cook until onions are soft and translucent. Add green beans, dill, salt, and pepper. Stir well, and serve immediately.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup)
