Garlic Green Beans
| Yield: 4-6 servings | Time: 20 minutes |
1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and snapped in half
3 tablespoons butter, or olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 pinches lemon pepper
salt to taste
Place green beans into a large skillet and cover with water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until beans start to soften, about 5 minutes. Drain water. Add butter, or olive oil to green beans; cook and stir, 2 to 3 minutes.
Cook and stir garlic with green beans until garlic is tender and fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with lemon pepper and salt.
