Garlicky Green Beans

I love this recipe because it's one of those recipes that's quick and easy but tastes a little more advanced. It's the perfect side dish for any meal and the green adds nice color to a plate. And if you want to make it a little healthier feel free to substitute the butter with olive oil. 

Ingredients (makes 4-6 servings):

  • 1 lb. green beans
  • 4 cloves of garlic because we are NOT messing around, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter OR olive oil if you're the healthier kind
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Boil the green beans for about ten minutes then drain. 
  2. In a pan over medium heat, melt the butter.
  3. Add the garlic a sauté for about 3-5 minutes, stirring every once in a while. What you're experience in your nostrils right now is the best smell known to mankind. Take it in.
  4. Add in your green beans in give them a nice coating of the garlic butter mixture. Add in your salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Transfer to your serving bowl and voila! So easy and soooo good.
