I don't know if you can tell from my posts, but I love green beans and how versatile of a vegetable they are. They're also a good vegetable to learn how to cook for beginner home cooks. This recipe is one of favorite green recipes that my mom taught me how to make when I younger. She's also the reason why turkey kielbasa is my favorite sausage. My favorite thing about this recipe is that its a great alternative to the way that its usually slowly boiled with chicken broth and a ham hock or several big pieces of ham. I'm not someone who is big on beef and pork when it comes to cooking at home and using turkey kielbasa doesn't take away from the flavor of the classic version. I invite you to try this for yourself the next time your in the mood for green beans!
-1-2 lbs. fresh green beans (ends snapped and removed)
-1 cup thinly sliced turkey kielbasa
-1 tbs. olive oil
-4 cups chicken broth
-2 tbs. minced garlic
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1/4 tsp. black pepper
Heat the olive oil on medium heat in a pot. Add the kielbasa and make sure to leave some space between each piece. Cook for 2 minutes on each side then remove from the pot and set aside.
Add the broth and bring to a boil. Add the green beans and all seasonings. Cover and cook on low heat for 20 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
