I've got some fresh organic green beans from Trader Joe's in the fridge. I'll be making this recipe soon.

The recipe says it's 9 servings, the calories are per serving. I can't wait to try this!

ok, I'm no math major but 43 x 9 = 387 calories (supposedly for the entire dish)

 

4 1/2 teaspoons of oil = 120 cal x 4.5 = 540 calories (just for the oil..not even counting the other ingredients)

 

Do you see what I am saying?

A teaspoon of oil is only about 40 calories. It's 120 calories for a Tablespoon.

 

So 40 X 4.5 = 180 calories

Arlene, the total list of ingredients is for 9 servings, so you'd have to divide that 4 1/2 teaspoons of oil by 9. By plcm's numbers, we could divide that 120 calories for oil by 9, making 13 calories of oil for each serving. Hope this helps.
