    Wow! This sounds so good! I don’t have any hot sauce, but I think I will try it with Sriacha sauce and see how it turns out!

    I made this tonight and OMG was it good! We even used the leftover sauce to dunk our chicken in! I cut the reipe in half since it’s just me & hubby eating the veggies. Hubby was mad that we ran out lol!

    I’ve been on a green bean kick lately – these would be such a great twist on our usual steamed green beans!

    Everyone’s gonna love this. Looks so fabulous!!! Loved this idea of combining honey and hot sauce.

    These look delicious! Speaking of meal prep bowls….I love both your ideas! I’ve tried both of them and they’ve both been great! I’d love any more ideas you have! I’m a third year pharmacy student and have very long days in class! It’s nice to have an actual meal at school!!!

    I love new recipes for green beans. In the summer I have them coming out of my ears.

  7. Alexis @ Upside Down Pear

    I love the idea of using green beans, but my boyfriend won’t go near them. Maybe I’ll try this glaze with broccoli since I know I’m gonna need this in my life!

    Do you have a suggestion for something other than siracha? I am not on the siracha band wagon at all or any hot sauce.
    Thank you

    As a Buffalo gal, I’m so excited you used Frank’s Red Hot Sauce! My husband puts it on his morning cereal, he thinks it’s that good! And I’ve read that green beans are one of the top foods for diabetics! Yay. As the Home Depot commercials say, “let’s do this”
