A very quick and simple way to enjoy fresh green beans.

Yield 4 servings
Time 15 minutes
  • knife
  • large pot
  • colander
  • large frying pan
  • wooden spoon
  • 1½ pounds green beans
  • 1½ T olive oil
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt

Directions 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.
