I am a big fan of crunchy vegetables. After picking up a couple pounds of organic green beans from the farmers’ market I decided to make my Green Bean Sauté. Some people like to blanch their vegetables before throwing them in the sauté pan, but I prefer the extra crunch.
3 Pounds Trimmed & Stringless Green Beans
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
5 Sliced Garlic Cloves
1 Large Sliced Shallot
1/8 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
In a large sauté pan heat the olive oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and shallots. Cook for 1 minute. Make sure that the garlic and shallots don’t burn. Add the green beans, salt & pepper and cook for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from the heat and place in a serving bowl. Serves 4
