This is one of my favorite ways to prepare green beans. So simple! Plus I’m the only vegetable lover in our household so I will try anything to trick my family into eating their veggies! You can use fresh or frozen green beans, I’ve tried it both ways. I personally prefer how the frozen green beans cook up. Just dump them in the pan from the bag, no need to thaw out. DELICIOUS!!!
- 12 oz bag of frozen whole green beans
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
- kosher salt & pepper to taste
-Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat and add green beans.
-Using tongs, toss in oil until all ice is gone. Cover with lid.
-Cook until the green beans start to soften (approx. 5-7 minutes), stirring occasionally.
-Add garlic and continue cooking for 1-2 more minutes or until garlic starts to brown.
-Season with salt & pepper then transfer to plate with paper towel to drain excess grease.
Note: Sometimes I add onions to spruce it up. To do so just add sliced onions to skillet first and cook for a couple of minutes before adding beans.
