Lemon-Garlic Green Beans

Lemon-Garlic Green Beans

A zesty, refreshing way to prepare green beans.


  • 1 lb green beans, fresh, with the ends trimmed
  • the juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • S&P to taste


In a large pot, boil water and add green beans for 10 minutes (enough to keep the color and not have the beans become mushy).

Drain the beans; set aside. Heat the same pot over medium heat, melt butter, sauté the garlic, and add beans back into the pot, stirring to coat the beans with the garlic butter mixture. Squeeze the lemon juice onto the beans and season with S&P. Stir and serve.
