This is a great side dish or even a main dish if you are looking for a yummy vegetable dish to fill your plate. It is super easy to make with very little prep. It doesn’t qualify as vegetarian unless you substitute the butter with Avocado oil (in which case, I would add additional spices to the saute portion of the recipe for flavor to suite your taste).
1 Pound Fresh Green Beans
2 Cups Water
3 Cloves Garlic, Minced
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Snap ends of beans off (this is a preference thing, I don’t like the ends of the beans). Bring the beans and water to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and set beans aside. In a large skillet, saute garlic in butter until light golden brown. Add beans, salt and pepper. Heat through and mix well. Remove from heat and serve. If you are adding additional spices, Do so when adding the beans to the butter mixture. If you are using butter and are sensitive to salt, try using unsalted butter.
This is a great recipe than can be adjusted many different ways. Another fun tip is to add Parmesan cheese just prior to serving. Enjoy and let me know if you have any other fun variations to this recipe.
