Sauteed Green Beans

Ohmygoodness!!! These beans are so amazing!!! I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner and I came across these crazy-fresh green beans!  I figured I would lightly sauté the beans but I had no idea what kind of sauce.  It’s really all about the basics.  These were sauteed with some onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and extra virgin olive oil.

Ingredients:

  • Fresh green beans
  • 1/4 cup onion, chopped
  • 3 large cloves of garlic, minced
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper 

 

I started a cast iron pan with olive oil, 1/4 cup chopped onion, and 3 large cloves of garlic.  Sauté the onions & garlic until the onions start to look translucent. Add the beans, salt and pepper (to taste). Sauté until piping hot and crunchy. Serve hot!
