Stir-Fried Green Beans

I made my first recipe out of my More-with-Less Cookbook! For those of you who haven't heard of it, it is a great resource for healthy, cost-effective recipes.

Here is more info from amazon, lots of great reviews:

It is a very interesting book- with a copyright of 1977 some things are a little dated (like the costs of food in the beginning), but a huge majority of the recipes in the book use a lot of common ingredients that I already have on hand. I love this because there is no running out to the store to have to get that one ingredient that you don't have!

Tonight for dinner, since I had a pound of fresh green beans that I bought at the Farmer's Market, I made:

Stir-Fried Green Beans
Peanut Soup

The Stir-Fried Green Beans were a hit with my family - I added leftover rotisserie chicken, served over brown rice, and it was delicious! The peanut soup was not as good. I have always wanted to try it and it was easy to make but just not our thing. My youngest loved it but he was the only one. Since there is a lot left over he will be eating peanut soup for the next couple of days with his lunch!

I made peanut butter soup a long time ago, and it was very good. Unfortunately, I can't find the recipe now, but I'm sure there are some good ones out there! Keep looking, maybe you'll find it!
