  1. For Green Beans with Garlic and Pomegranate, I would recommend steaming 6 cups of fresh green beans, then tossing with 3 cloves minced garlic and 1/2 c. of pomegranate arils. Serves 12 (nutrition above).

    Another option would be to saute the green beans in 2-3 tsps. of olive oil with the 3 cloves of minced garlic. Remove the green beans with a slotted spoon and place in a serving dish. Then add 3 Tbsp. of pomegranate or cranberry juice to the remaining garlic oil and simmer. Pour over cooked green beans and sprinkle with the 1/2 c. of pomegranate arils to serve.

  2. Thanks for giving your version of the Green Bean w/Pomegranate recipe from the Biggest Loser Curtis Stone Thanksgiving meal. I didn’t pay enough attention to reconstruct it myself. I can’t wait to try the whole menu!
