Green Beans with Onion and Bacon
When a person is undergoing mesothelioma treatment, it is very important that he or she gets enough calories and nutrients to stay strong for the fight. Sometimes it is difficult to eat, though, as cancer treatments often affect a person’s appetite. This is a little twist on green beans that may entice—because who doesn’t love a little bacon?
1 large red onion, cut into ½ inch strips
½ tsp olive oil
2 pounds fresh, trimmed green beans
½ tsp garlic salt
4 tsp balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp bacon bits
- In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil. Add union and cook until caramelized—about 25 minutes. Set aside.
- Steam green beans roughly 10 minutes, until crisp-tender.
- Mix green beans and garlic salt in pan with onions.
- Drizzle with vinegar and garnish with bacon bits. Serve warm or cold.
