    • I have not tried it with frozen green beans, but I don’t see why not! The cook time and temperature will be different though since it is cooking from frozen and not fresh.

    • Hi Peter, the nutrition count, including sodium is included under the recipe at the bottom. I hope that helps!

    • Thank you, I missed it. I will make it today. Due to sodium restriction, I will sub in some finely chopped garlic and a little bit of powdered citric acid

    • They taste wonderful with just a little salt and pepper with oil as well. We make them like that a lot too.
