I made these as a side dish when I discovered my frozen green Beans had freezer burn.

Not bad at all for canned green beans and other veggies. I was trying to create home made flavor, so I used the liquid from the cans to cook the raw veggies in, then added some pepper, butter and garlic powder and the flavor was quite tasty for a quick vegetable side dish.

I opted to cut the carrots about the same size as the green beans to make them look more uniform. It was the first time I did this but it worked out great and the beans really did have that homemade flavor that I was looking for.
