Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • 1 pound(s) fresh green beans ends trimmed
  • 4 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
Instructions
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet or non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. When hot add the green beans. Cook for 5 - 10 minutes, tossing every now and then until the green beans are softened but still a bit crisp and have blackened in some areas. If the beans are browning but they are still too firm, reduce the heat to low and continue to cook gently until you reach desired texture.
  • Add the garlic and continue cooking 1 minute more while stirring frequently to cook the garlic. Remove from heat and season with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Serve hot.
Notes
Oil-free: to make this dish oil-free, use water or vegetable broth instead of the olive oil to sauté the green beans. 
Olive oil: feel free to sub the olive oil for another oil such as coconut oil, avocado oil, or vegetable oil.
