10 Minute Garlic Green Beans

16 Apr

Yes, even your kids will eat this quick and easy side dish.  The First secret to this dish is, don’t put too much thought into it.  Cook it up, dish it up and pack it up for leftovers. It’s made ‘quick and simple’ by the genius creation of pre washed, organic green beans.

Ingredients

1 pkg of the pre washed, organic green beans (prep time: 15 seconds.  cut open the bag)

4-6 cloves of garlic finely chopped.  Don’t get fancy about it, rock that knife and chop away… pull your thumb under so it doesn’t entice your knife.

salt/pepper to taste.  I use Himalayan salt it helps regulate your body’s blood sugar, water and ph levels.  Plus, It’s PINK, how cool is that!  Image

Directions

Heat 2 tbls EVOO and add ALL the garlic and Himalayan salt on Medium heat.  Let cook for two minutes or until you can smell the garlic but DON’T let the garlic get too brown or it will end up burning and you will have bitter Green Beans that your kids nor your dog will eat.

Add your Green Beans and let cook for 3-4 minutes.  Then add just a touch of water and do NOT cover.  This is the second key.  The small amount of water will reduce and create a sauce like consistency.  My kiddos like their green beans less snappy than I so I advise to cook them (beans, not the kids) to a texture that is appealing to your entire family.
