"Here's a change of pace: crispy stir-fried beans that are excellent as an appetizer or side dish. Green vegetables are rich in antioxidants and tied to lower risks for certain cancers." — USA WEEKEND columnist Jean Carper

OLD BAY® Blackened Seasoning
Salt, to taste
I used EVOO instead of canola oil only because that was all I had on hand. I did not have Old Bay on hand but I did have homemade cajun seasoning that I used in equal amounts. We LOVED these green beans. They were anything but average for us.
I've got to agree with one other reviewer - these are not really that tasty. I was looking for a memorable side dish with green beans - and, this is just not it. Couldn't really taste the Old Bay seasoning on the beans, either. Tried adding grated parmesan cheese, and that helped a wee bit.
I never thought of using Old Bay on green beans. I loved it! I omitted the nuts and added bacon bits and it was great! I made this with the Spinach Stuffed Chicken and it was a great meal!
This was quite good! I made some changes. I heated about 1/2Tbsp of olive oil, sauteed some diced onion and garlic for a few seconds, added 1/2Tbsp butter, Then I added the vegetables (I'd half cooked them in the steamer). I added some julienned carrots and yellow peppers to the green beans for extra vitamins and color. I made them for Father's Day and my family loved them. Even my notoriously picky sister asked for the recipe. I almost fell over in shock.
These beans were FANTASTIC! I couldn't find any old bay blackening seasoning (I had never even heard of it), so I found a recipe to make my own blackening seasoning. They turned out perfect, even my boyfriend gives them a 5/5.
Well, I'm getting old. Thought I had pecans, but didn't. Used almonds instead. Forgot the recipe called for BLACKENED Old Bay- didn't have any, so used regular Old Bay. Turned out great anyway!
AWESOME, the only change i made was that I ground up the pecans into meal...
SO, SO, SO GOOD!!!!!
My kids don't like green beans... But they loved this recipe!!! My husband and I loved it too!!!! I didn't change anything and I already make it three times... This is one of my favorite vegetable side dishes.
