Number of serving: 4
1 pound fresh or frozen green beans

1 garlic clove minced

a pinch of red pepper flakes

a good healthy pinch of  salt

1 lemon (zested and juiced)


  • Start by placing the beans in 1 cup of water and turn heat up to high bringing to a boil.
  • Allow this to boil with no lid for about 4-5 minutes They should be tender enough to eat but not mushy at this point.
  • Drain all the water off and return to the high heat for a few seconds to cook off any water.
  • Lower the heat to medium low. Now add the oil, garlic, lemon zest, red pepper, and salt.
  • Saute-- stirring constantly so the garlic does not burn-- a few minutes until the garlic is tender, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the lemon juice and saute for another few seconds.
