Garlic Green Beans


While fresh beans are still in season, make this simple side. It only takes a few ingredients and minutes to throw together.

1 pound fresh string beans
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt to taste
Ground peppercorn
1 to 2 cloves fresh garlic

Wash the beans and trim their stem ends. Leave them whole or cut them in half.

Warm the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the beans with a pinch of sea salt and ground peppercorn. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender-crisp, about 10 minutes.

Turn off the heat. Grate the garlic over the beans, then toss them to distribute it evenly. Cover for 1 minute. Toss again and taste for seasoning. Adjust if necessary. Serve immediately.
