Technicolor Green Bean Low-Carb Gluten-Free Recipe

Many low-carbers tend to rely too heavily on broccoli, asparagus, and cauliflower. They omit most legumes because the assumption is that beans are too high in carbs. And in fact, many are too high. Green beans however, are just fine for the low-carber who is staying on plan and listening to their body. The Technicolor Green Beans recipe is just such a recipe. It is low in carbs, Gluten-Free, delicious, and it pairs well with any type of entrée.
