Cooked fresh beans 10 minutes in water to cover them, drained, added garlic chopped in melted butter. Superb!

We used fresh green beans and doubled the garlic. Even with the extra garlic, everyone felt it needed more. But we are a family of garlic lovers.

This was so easy to do on a weeknight. I steamed the green beans and then added to the mixture of garlic and butter. Thanks Thomas Danler :) Made for Cookbook tag game
