Green beans is a STAPLE in our house. I make it at least 2 times a week. I make these GARLIC GREEN BEANS at least once a week. My kids LOVE to eat it by itself!!! My lil gal can sit there and munch on these all day long. They are the easiest to make. I usually BLANCH my green beans then I saute it with garlic and oil. BUT…when I don’t have any fresh ones…I usually get the FROZEN ones from Trader Joe’s.
1 lb green beans (wash and trimmed)
1 tablespoon MINCED GARLIC
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon seasoning sauce
2 tablespoon olive oil
After I blanch the green beans and shock them…I set them aside. In a large skillet with some olive oil…add in the minced garlic. Cook for about 1 minute then add in the blanch green beans and season with green beans with the garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Next, add in the SEASONING SAUCE and TOSS for a minute or 2. Take off heat and SERVE. Since the green beans already blanch…it only takes a few minutes to saute.
***You can also use FROZEN green beans. If you are using frozen green beans…add everything to the PAN after you ADD the OIL to the HOT pan.
