Low Carb Luxury Recipe!
Holiday Green Beans

  • 2 3/4 lbs green beans, trimmed; strings removed
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 3 Tbsp finely chopped mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup walnuts, coarsly chopped
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp scallions, freshly chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Garlic to taste
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

In a 4 1/2 quart saucepan, bring 2 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add green beans. When the water returns to a boil, cook green beans for 5 minutes. Drain water from beans. Set aside.

In the same saucepan, add butter, cream, walnuts, scallions, garlic and salt. Heat to a small boil, stirring constantly. Heat until slightly thick. Return beans to pan and heat thoroughly. Top with bacon just before serving.

To add a bit of Christmas color, if desired, sprinkle a few chopped pimientos on top around the bacon. It adds only an extra trace of carbs.

Makes 8 Servings.   3 net grams of carbohydrate per serving.
