Magic Green Beans

Natalie, my seven year old daughter, would never eat green beans.  As a matter of fact she used to be a very picky eater up until the age of four, but that has changed.  Aannyway... I used to tell her that my green beans were "Magic".  A five year old that loves Disney Princesses understands that "Magic" food has life altering abilities so she tried them.  They really must be magic as she to this day continues to devour her fair share.  Here's the "magic"....

Two cans of cut green beans

Drain and rinse the beans and add to the pot.

Add tap water to cover the beans.

Add one cube of bouillon per two cans of beans.

Crush the cube and spread over the top of the pot.

Add a 1/4 cup of sliced or diced onion.

A shot of Worcestershire sauce.

Salt and Pepper to taste (a lot of pepper)

One Bay leaf per two cans of beans.

Give it all a stir and bring to a boil.

Once boiling reduce to simmer and cover.

Allow to cook as long as you want - at least 30 minutes or up to 6 hours.

It's MAGICAL how they disappear!


  1. That is a cute story. I like the flavor combination. Maybe it will work on my 17 year old picky boy.

  2. That really is very fun how kids come to realize the meaning behind certain things as they inch up in age. I love all the savory goodness that you put into a can of green beans. No wonder they disappear!

  3. What a precious little story behind the beans! Magic makes everything better =)
