This recipe works well as side or entree


  • 1 bag Birds Eye Steamfresh Whole Green Beans
  • 1 Simple Truth Plant-Based Meatless Chorizo Sausage (just one sausage), diced
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 3 Tbsp Miyoko’s Cultured Vegan Butter
  • 2 tsp salt (to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper (to taste)


  • Add sliced shallot to a large pan with 1 Tbsp of butter, stir until translucent
  • Microwave the green beans on high in the unopened bag for 3 minutes. This is less than the package directions, but help ensure they don’t overcook. Let them sit in the microwave to cool once done.
  • Add diced sausage to the shallots
  • Cook the shallots and sausage, stirring occasionally, until they both are browned
  • Take the green beans out of the microwave, open the bag and add them directly to the pan with shallots and sausage. (Make sure they’ve cooled enough before opening the bag.)
  • Add garlic powder, salt, pepper and 2 Tbsp of butter to the pan and stir to incorporate
  • Serve with your choice of entree or eat as a meal
