Lemon Parmesan Green Beans

Lemon Parmesan Green Beans

This recipe has super powers. Although the recipe is very simple in nature, don't be fooled, this dish is full of great things! The beans are not only a great source of protein (4g per serving in this recipe!), but they are low in carbohydrates. The beans technically have 17g of carbs but also a whopping 7.6g of fibre, so the net carb count is actually less than 10g! Sweet deal! Normally, I am not a big fan of adding any salt to a dish unless absolutely necessary, but in this case, the salt boosts the lemon flavour. If you wish, you can compleltely eliminate the salt and the dish will still have a good taste. There is a hint of of olive oil, which gives this dish some good fats. This recipe also goes very well with a dash of garlic (clove) and a sprinkle of cracked black pepper.
