I found that homemade garlic oil is awesome in both asparagus and green beans. You can have them roasted or throw them on the grill for a delicious char. I was throwing the garlic in with the veggies until I saw another recipe that stirred in Dijon mustard to make a sauce. Thus a star was born.

The Asparagus and Green Beans are both fantastic grilled or broiled, too!

Ingredients

1 lb
green beans or asparagus
3 Tbsp
olive oil
3 clove
garlic

DRESSING OPTION 1

3-4 tsp
dijon mustard
1/4 tsp
dried rosemary, crushed
salt and pepper

DRESSING OPTION 2

1 Tbsp
red wine vinegar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
If using green beans, remove stems and halve. If using asparagus, trim off woody pieces and save for another use. Boil vegetables in salted water, 3 to five minutes. Drain and immediately drop into ice water. Let sit for another three minutes.
2
Meanwhile, mixrowave coarsely chopped garlic and olive oil in 30 second intervals until fragrant. Be careful not to burn the garlic or have the oil too shallow. I do it in a small tea cup. Reserve 1 tablespoon of garlic infused oil and toss the remaining oil with the vegetables and a liberal amount of salt. Sprinkle garlic pieces over vegetables.
3
Roast vegetables in 400 degree oven for thirty minutes. For dressing, try one of the following: 1.) Mix Dijon mustard, rosemary, and desired amount of pepper into remaining oil. Or 2.) mix garlic oil and a tablespoon of red wine vinegar in a dressing bottle. When vegetables are well roasted, drizzle one of the dressings over the vegetables and serve.
