Watch Victoria prepare this green bean side dish on Secrets of Skinny Cooking!
When we were working on Everyday Secret Restaurant recipes, Leah Schapira told me that one of her friends kept asking for the recipe for the green beans at one particular Manhattan restaurant. Though I didn’t ask for the recipe (I preferred a different dish there), I did finally get to taste the green beans during a visit soon after. And though I liked the smoky, charred flavor, I didn’t like that they were doused in a sweet sauce that likely contained lots of sugar. This version is both light and perfect.
