sauteed green beans
There is just nothing better than being able to walk out your back door, pick green beans from the garden and sautee them up for an amazing side at dinner. Here is my simple and delicious recipe:
Sauteed Green Beans
1 T Olive Oil
2 T minced garlic
1 T minced onion
fresh ground salt and black pepper
4 C fresh green beans
Prepare the garlic and onion, mince them and set aside.
Wash green beans under cold running water. Cut off the root ends and discard. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the beans and blanch until bright green, about 2 minutes. Shock in ice water then drain in a colander.
Heat a large sautee pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil, then add the garlic and onions. Stir the mixture around so it fries in the oil and gets fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the green beans and toss a couple of times to coat everything evenly. Saute for a couple of minutes so the beans get a little caramelization. Cook for 1 to 2 more minutes; the beans should still be nice and crisp. Transfer to a large platter and serve with your favorite main dish.
