For a very simple recipe, try my sautéed green beans! My kids love it, and it’s super fast to cook for company. The ingredients are very basic, and the process can be adapted for other veggies, such as asparagus and zucchini.
First, cut the ends off of your green beans (I used about 3/4 of a pound).
Slice half of a sweet onion into thin half moons.
Next, mince up a clove of garlic.
In a skillet, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil. My favorite comes from Olive Paris!
Add in the onions to cook, sprinkling in a pinch of salt. Cook about 5 minutes.
Once the onions are translucent, add the green beans.
Give them about a minute just to get a teensy bit of color on the green beans before adding in one tablespoon of butter.
Next, add the garlic.
If you add the garlic too early, it will burn. Stir to combine and cover to fully cook green beans. Stir every couple of minutes for 10 minutes. Sprinkle in a pinch of salt and pepper. Enjoy!
