This has been a family favorite for years. Adjust the amount of the ingredients to your liking; try it with a little Parmesan cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a pot, steam the green beans until tender-crisp. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large saute on medium-low heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 2 minutes. DO NOT allow the garlic to burn!
  3. Stir in the bread crumbs and pepper. Cook for about 2 minutes more, pressing down on the bread crumb mixture with a spatula to allow it to become crispy. Again, be careful not to burn.
  4. Stir in the green beans and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately.
