Garlicky Green Beans

READY IN: 16mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I make this often with my summer's crop of green and yellow beans ---for this recipe I really don't bother to measure so really the exact amounts do not matter, however I have posted the amounts that I I think is pretty much close to what I use --- I usually have my beans already steamed and stored in the refrigerator until ready to use for this recipe, do not make this using uncooked raw beans they must be cooked firstly, prep time does not include pre-steaming the beans or peeling the garlic cloves.

This is a super good recipe. I cut the recipe back to two serving and used 4 very large garlic cloves coarsely chopped and 3/4 tsp of chili flakes. Definitely a do again often recipe Thanks Kitten for added great flavor to our dinner.
