This is one of my husband's favorite green bean recipes; it's especially good with young, tender green beans.
1 1/2 pounds green beans, steamed until crisp-tender
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons fresh tarragon (or 2 teaspoons dried)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-2 teaspoons lite soy sauce
Mix butter and next three ingredients together. Stir half of the butter mixture into the warm green beans and pass the remainder at the table. Serves 4-6
This also works well with the cooking method described in Speedy Rosemary Green Beans (substituting tarragon for rosemary).
