Tired of those green bean casseroles. These beans are amazing and bring a whole new flavor that will stir up your taste buds.

If you are not a green bean lover these green beans will definately change your mind. The olive oil infused with the leeks becomes a savory coating over the beans, and the dill weed just adds to the flavor. Topping it off with feta cheese takes these beans to the top of the chart.

Set your holiday table with Green Beans and Leeks.
