I have been so hungry for fresh green beans! I finally bought some. I didn’t want to go across town to Meijer, but I price-matched their $0.77/pound at Walmart. (You should do the same!)
I hadn’t made fresh green beans in a long time, so I wasn’t sure how I should season them. I really like the green beans I’ve had at Chinese buffets. I decided to improvise, and I was very pleased with the end result.
I washed and prepared a couple handfuls of beans, just enough for two people, and placed them in a small skillet.
– About 2 tablespoons of olive oil
– About 2 tablespoons water
– Salt (to taste!)
– Granulated garlic (About 1/4 teaspoon)
– 1/4 cup chopped onion
I cooked on high with the lid on for about 10 minutes – but just until “crisp-tender.”
This was a delicious, quick, and healthy lunch!
