Garlic Green Beans: Recipe of the Week


Garlic Green Beans

In the celebration of Chinese New Year, one of my favorite veggie dishes is garlic green beans. Growing up, my uncle would make green beans for Thanksgiving,and they are amazing!  There is always room for green beans. My uncle shared with me how to make these crisp green beans, and they are a hit every time I make them.



Green beans

Garlic, minced and don't be shy, I usually use 3 to 6 cloves

Butter/ olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste



Boil some water in a pan with some salt. Once it's boiling, dump the green beans and cook until the beans are bright green.  Pour water and beans into a colander. Heat the pan with butter and then brown the minced garlic. Add the green beans and stir. It only takes a few minutes to be done. Salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
