We dressed up the All American classic side dish with a delicious twist.

Ingredients

Uncooked string beans

1 pound(s), trimmed

Canola oil

1 Tbsp

Uncooked red onion(s)

1 medium, thinly sliced

Garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s), minced

Table salt

¼ tsp

Cayenne pepper

tsp

Unsweetened shredded coconut

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the green beans and cook until bright green and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic, salt, and cayenne; cook, stirring frequently, until the onions are softened, about 5 minutes. Add the coconut and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add the green beans and cook, stirring constantly, until heated through, about 1 minute longer. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
