Black Bean Green Beans

South Shore Chef's Black Bean Green BeansWhile in Kauai this past summer, we had the fabulous opportunity to have Michael Stauber – the South Shore Chef – cook an amazing dinner for us. He is a personal chef out of Koloa, Kauai, and he caters to the islanders as well as vacationers that frequent the beautiful island. We had an amazing steak dinner in our condo, and we had the pleasure of Michael’s company as well. One of my husband’s favorite dishes was the Black Bean Green Beans. Not only are they a delicious addition to any meal, they are so easy to make. Here is Michael’s recipe – it was a perfect addition to Thanksgiving dinner.

    1. Thanks, Winnie. I try my best to get my kids (and hubby) to eat veggies, so I will try anything.

    1. I hadn’t either. It was in the “ethnic foods” aisle of my grocery store. I love learning how to use new and different condiments and sauces.
