Green Bean Scramble


I recently spent all day at a college parent orientation.  I walked back to the car worn out but pleased at how the day went.  Then it got better.  There were several tents set up on the sidewalk near the parking lot with local farmers selling their produce.

I picked up peaches, berries, potatoes, green beans, onions, and fennel.  When I arrived home, I had ground beef thawed, but no plan for what to do with it.  I needed something pretty quick and easy since I was tired.

I thought of my zucchini scramble recipe and decided to make something similar using green beans.

This green bean scramble is a filling low carb meal by itself, but it is also great served with gluten-free toast.

  1. I really like that! I’m always looking for brunch type recipes since Bob leaves for work at 10:30 am on Sunday. It sort of disturbs our normal daily routine when he starts work in the afternoon. I still find myself trying to figure out what we’re going to eat on Sunday morning. Will definitely give this a try.

  2. Some of my favorites together — especially green beans, onion and ground beef. My husband would like this for a quick dinner, I’m sure! And I always like another easy meal with ground beef.
