Green Beans on the side
This provides nice balance to your proteins. Easy to make, high on taste and good for you.
This is what you need:
- Greens Beans - 1 lb, snipped at edges
- Butter - 1 tbs
- Oil - 1 tbs (or you can use all butter)
- Garlic- 2 tsp, minced.
- Cranberries - A handful, optional
- Salt to taste
All you need to do is blanch the beans in water which has been generously seasoned with salt for about 4 minutes till the beans turn a brighter green. Drain and plunge in a bowl of ice water. This will help in retaining the crunchiness and color. In a pan, heat the butter + oil. Add minced garlic and fry till fragrant. Add the green beans and toss till nicely coated.
Serve with your favorite protein. We had this as a part of our Thanksgiving lunch so I added cranberries to it.
