  • 12 oz fresh green beans
  • ½ cup water
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp kosher salt



Wash and trim the green beans.


Add water to a sauté pan and boil. Quickly blanch the green beans in the water, just a few minutes, until they look bright green.


Transfer the green beans to an ice bath to cool.


Drain water from the sauté pan, add butter, and reheat over medium heat.


When the butter is melted, add the garlic and sauté just until fragrant (don't burn the garlic).


Drain the beans and transfer back into the pan. Cook until just heated through. Salt to taste. And serve hot!
