As we roll into spring time, we begin to see fresh veggies looking delicious once again at Farmer’s Markets and in our local grocery store. While we are a few months away from having green beans fresh from our garden, this recipe makes me so excited for that season.
You can easily make these with fresh and frozen green beans, and they are a perfect side dish to so many meals.
Garlicy Green Beans
- 1/2 T butter
- 12-16 oz green beans (fresh or frozen)
- Salt & pepper, to taste
- 1/4 tsp. minced garlic
Begin by melting butter over medium heat in a large skillet. When the butter is melted, add in the minced garlic and toast slightly. Then, add the green beans. Stir to coat and then cover the green beans in the skillet to steam for 3-5 minutes. Stir occasionally during that time.
Remove the cover and continue sautéing the green beans over medium-high heat for an additional 2-4 minutes.
