Spicy Garlic Green Beans

3 years ago

Here is an extremely quick and easy side dish that is bursting with flavor. Fresh green beans are quickly blanched, and then pan-fried in garlic, butter, and red pepper flakes for some kick. The green beans maintain some of their crunch and therefore keep most of their nutrients. This could be on your table in under 15 minutes. Enjoy!

  • 1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 4 tsp. minced garlic
