Low Carb Sweet And Spicy Green Beans

Simplicity is key with these sweet and spicy green beans! The green beans will provide a natural sweetness, and the agave nectar enhances that. You get just a touch of heat from some crushed red pepper flakes and sesame seeds. This is an excellent side dish to any main course, and the flavors will speak for themselves!

    I made this as written other than I used 1 1/2 teaspoon hot honey in place of the agave. NASTY, SO salty from the amount of soy sauce. that I couldn't finish my supper. All I can say is find a different recipe for your green beans.

      I made this without the agave and used ground ginger in place of fresh grated. Myself and family love it!

            I completely cut out the agave and it was still very good!

            I think any sweetener would work but just add a little at a time to get it right.

            I was going to try Lakanto golden monk fruit sweetener. It's pretty good and it taste a bit like real brown sugar. It has zero net carbs because of the sugar alcohol.
