Indian Spicy Green Beans

When I says spicy green beans for this recipe, I don’t necessarily mean hot.

This green bean recipe brings the exotic flavors of India to common, every day green beans and carrots. Indian vegetables are often not hot, just really savory with wonderful spices.

I love green bean recipes. I so seldom do anything to green beans but eat them, so it’s nice to find another way of serving them.

Indian vegetable recipes are usually wonderfully healthy and this one certainly is. It just has a few simple spices added to it, but they really amp up the flavor.

If you like things spicy you certainly can add your favorite hot sauce.
