These are delicious. And simple.
My family dug through my stack of flagged Cooking Light recipes and made these for my husband and I the day we brought our son home from the hospital. I devoured a generous portion and then proceeded to split the last few beans in the serving bowl with my brother. I repeated the recipe this week, and we ate them all before we could capture their photographic soul.
Green Beans with Toasted Garlic
1 lb. green beans, trimmed
2 tsp. butter
1 tsp. olive oil
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add the beans, and cook five minutes. Drain beans, and place in an ice water bath.
Meanwhile, heat a large skillet with the butter and oil. Add the garlic, and cook 30 seconds. Remove garlic slices. Add drained green beans, salt and pepper. Cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Toss with garlic slices. Makes 4 servings. (Or 2. Green beans are vegetables. They're healthy.)
