Garlic Green Beans

Servings: 8

Garlic and green beans for together like salt and pepper. I have to be honest, since having children I don’t eat garlic. However, I still can cook with it, and can recommend it, as it is delicious. We just are friends. Ha!


In large saucepan heat oil on medium high. Add sliced garlic. Cook 1 minute until soft and aromatic. Add green beans; toss with oil and garlic. Cook 3 to 4 minutes. Add enough water to just cover the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat, cover, and steam 8 minutes or until beans are crisp-tender. Drain water. Season with salt. Serve garnished with pea tendrils, if desired.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 10 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 pound green beans, trimmed
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Pea tendrils (optional)
