ingredients

directions

  • Steam beans over a pot of boiling water, or in a veggie steamer, for about 5 minutes.
  • Feel free to steam more or less, depending on how your family likes their veggies cooked.
  • Keep in mind that you will also be sautéing the beans in the next step.
  • In a large saute pan, heat olive oil.
  • Add the garlic and saute for about 45 seconds to impart its flavors into the oil.
  • Before the garlic begins to brown, add the red pepper flakes and green beans to the pan and cook for another 5 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
  • Season with salt and pepper and serve.
