I used fresh green beans from my garden for this. It was a great recipe, but next time I may add some of the dill from my garden also for that something extra!

Delicious! I serve this to dinner guests all the time now. But I only use fresh beans and very little oil.

This was very good. I used a frozen vegetable mix that included green beans, sugar snap peas, broccoli, yellow squash and water chestnuts. I used a semi dry peach chardonnay for the wine. When the vegetables were cooked as much as I wanted, I removed them with a slotted spoon, poured the remaining liquid into a smaller saucepan, and cooked it until it reduced. Then I poured the sauce over the veggies. A healthy, tasty way to enjoy vegetables.

I never, ever use canned green beans so I used steam in bag of whole green beans gave them a drizzle of olive oil, tossed them with the minced garlic, salt & pepper. Then instead of the white wine reduction just gave them a generous splash of white wine vinegar - delicious!

My original review is missing, so I am leaving another one. I made these using frozen green beans and will use fresh next time. I finished this off with a few shakes of lemon pepper seasoning for some zest, which seemed to compliment the wine flavor very well. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I used frozen green beans and sauvigion blanc. Next time I think I would use less than a cup of wine or perhaps more beans they were quite drenched in wine. Overall very good though.

Blah. Perfectly good glass of wine wasted on this recipe. I'll stick to using only fresh green beans and keeping wine out of it.
