EASY GREEN BEAN DISH TO TAKE TO THANKSGIVING GATHERING
Here's a great vegetable dish to take to a pot-luck gathering of family or friends for Thanksgiving, or any occasion. It's one of the more than 100 recipes in Veggie Revolution.
Nancy's Time-Saving Green Beans
1. Crumble 1/2 to 3/4 cup of tofu into pea-sized pieces, then marinate them in enough Italian dressing to barely cover them while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
2. Snap and string 2 cups fresh green beans.
3. Steam beans for a few minutes, until tender but still slightly crunchy. Remove from heat.
4. Meanwhile, slice in half
3/4 cup cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup black olives
5. When the green beans have cooled, mix the vegetables together. Dress with marinated tofu crumbles and Italian dressing to taste. Chill before serving. Serves 4.
