A very quick and simple way to enjoy fresh green beans.
Fill pot with water, add salt, and bring to a boil over high heat.
Meanwhile, trim the green beans and cut them in half. Add to boiling water and cook about 5 minutes, until tender but still crisp. Drain.
Heat oil over medium heat, add garlic, and sauté for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add beans, salt, and pepper, and cook, still stirring constantly for 2-3 minutes, until hot. Serve immediately.
