BEST SIMPLE GREEN BEANS



LONG GREEN BEANS


BEST SIMPLE GREEN BEANS

Oh my, this is literally one of the only recipes you will ever need for delicious green beans.  My husband asked me to quickly write down the recipe.  I have made simple green beans before stir-fried in bacon fat with bits of bacon or even topped with a mixture of bacon and sliced almonds stir-fried in bacon fat (also incredibly good, but more fussy, obviously).

Water for boiling
1 tsp salt (5 mL)
2 lbs long, skinny green beans (0.9 kg)
  (they don't have strings, BUT you can use regular green beans)
2 tbsp light-tasting olive oil (30 mL)
1 tbsp crushed garlic (15 mL)
  (the bottled kind)
1 tsp salt (5 mL)
1 tsp black pepper (5 mL)

In large pot, pour water half way and bring to the boil with 1 tsp salt (5 mL) in it.  Cut the ends off green beans and cut into manageable lengths.  Add to boiling water.  Boil around 13 to 14 minutes, or until very tender.


In large frying pan in olive oil and over medium heat, toss green beans to coat in the oil.  Add garlic, 1 tsp (5 mL) salt and black pepper.  Continue stirring and tossing to combine over medium heat until hot.  Serve.
