Best Green Beans That'll Ever Meet Your Mouth

Long time no see! Hope all is well with everyone. I know I have been busy with school and such but I will try to get on here more frequently these next few weeks since Spring Break is coming up and my schedule is slowly dying down (yippee!). So, let me tell you I love green beans but always seemed to prefer the canned ones because I guess I just never had fresh green beans cooked the right way. Well ladies and gents, I have created an enjoyable fresh green bean recipe that I cannot get enough of. I have cooked these fresh green beans twice this week, um yeah and it's ONLY Tuesday! But anyway here we go

Fresh Green Bean Sautee:


1 to 1.5 pounds fresh green beans
2 tablespoons garlic salt
Juice from one medium sized lemon
3 tablespoons Brummel & Brown Butter Made W/Yogurt
Extra Virgin Olive oil

Directions: First thing you're going to do is put on a large pot of salted water and bring to a rolling boil. While you wait for the water to boil what you're going to do is trim and snap the ends of all the green beans (after being washed, of course). Once all trimmed up, dump them into pot of boiling water for 4 minutes! While green beans boil for 4 minutes, prepare a large bowl full of water and ice. Once green beans are finished boiling drain and then dump them into the prepared ice bath. (now I have pictures below--sorry I didn't have pictures of the first part!)

After 15 minutes in the ice bath, drain and then toss green beans into large skillet with the bottom coated in a fair amount of olive oil.

Wow, sorry that picture turned out sideways. But anyway, you're going to set on medium heat and let sautee a little bit in the olive oil--for about 1 minute, make sure you move the beans around so they get equal heat. Then you're going to add butter, lemon juice, and garlic salt to the green beans in the skillet. Then you're going to toss with tongs and make sure they are fully coated. Let them sit and sautee and soak up the juices for about 2 minutes on medium heat. Let the tips of the beans turn yellow/golden and then they are ready to toss in a bowl and serve!

Salty, crunchy goodness. Who knew vegetables could be so tasty??
My picky friends even approved!
Until next time,
Bon appetit!
