How to Make Garlicky Green Beans


  1. Wash green beans well. Snap off both ends of the green beans, snap them in half leaving you with pieces that are two to three inches long.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium heat and add minced garlic and saute until the garlic begins to brown. Add green beans and continue to saute on medium heat for five to seven minutes. Sprinkle with salt just before serving.
  3. Notes:
    This is my favorite way to prepare green beans. You can be flexible with this recipe. I have added mushrooms before and it was wonderful.
