Notes

  1. A 15-oz. can of diced tomatoes can be used instead of fresh. Just add the whole can when you would normally add the fresh tomatoes.
  2. To make this in your slow cooker, add all ingredients except for lemon juice, dill, and olive oil to the crockpot and cook on high for three hours or low for six. Add the lemon juice, dill, and olive oil after it’s done just before serving.
  3. For a heartier meal, try adding some diced potatoes with a little more water and salt when you add the green beans. Or, serve these green beans (and the juices) over rice or with crusty bread.
  4. This recipe is easy to make ahead of time, and it can be store in your refrigerator for up to three days and reheated to serve. Make sure to add the lemon juice, dill, and olive oil just before serving, as they taste better when they’re fresh (but don’t worry about this with leftovers!).
  5. I do my best to provide accurate nutrition information for my recipes, but I am not a nutritionist. The provided nutrition information is my best estimate. It does not include any added sodium from seasoning to taste, any optional ingredients, and it does not take brands into account. Feel free to calculate it yourself using this calculator or by adding the recipe to Yummly.
