Garlicky Green Beans Recipe
1 lb green beans, topped/tailed
2 tbsp butter
1 garlic clove, fine chop
1 ground pepper, fresh
Boil beans ahead of time then reheat in the garlic/butter mixture.
Always run cold water over green vegetables to stop the cooking. This
also helps them retain their colour. 1. Bring a large pot of salted
water to boil on high heat. Add beans and boil until crisp-tender,
about 2 to 4 minutes. Alternately, steam beans for about
5 minutes, until crisp-tender. 2. Drain beans and refresh
under cold running water. 3. Heat butter and garlic together in
skillet on medium heat. Toss in beans and saute until beans are hot
and coated with mixture. Season with salt and pepper.
