This veggie dish is on your table in about fifteen minutes from start to finish and, with only five ingredients (or six if you want to get fancy), it’s super simple and easy to remember. This has been on our Easter table two years in a row, and graces our dinner table every so often throughout the rest of the year.
So put that steamer bag of frozen veggies down for one night and give fresh green beans a try! It is well worth the minimal effort you will put into it!
Easiest Green Beans Ever
1 lb fresh green beans
2-3 cloves of Garlic – diced fine or run through a garlic press
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1-2 Tbsp grated or flaked Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Fill a medium saucepot 2/3 of the way with water, and put over high heat.
Clean beans under running water, snap off both ends (or only the stem end if you prefer) and set aside. Once the water is boiling, drop in green beans and let boil for five minutes.
Mince garlic (or run through the garlic press)
Strain beans and put into serving bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, toss in garlic and parmesan (if using) and season to taste with salt and pepper.
