For a Tasty Christmas Side Dish, Cook Dutch Green Beans

Easter H. Tucker, interim family and consumer sciences program leader for the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, said Arkansans can cook festive and healthy holiday meals thanks to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s SNAP-Ed Connection recipe webpage. For a Christmas menu, she recommends the recipe for Dutch green beans.

“Using canned green beans and other pantry items, this side dish is great when you don’t have much time,” Tucker said. “Adding the onion at the end kicks up the flavor a bit.”
