DIRECTIONS

  • Trim green beans and cut carrot into sticks that are similar in size to the green beans.
  • Put the carrots in a microwave safe dish and pour about 1/2 a cup of boiling water over them. Loosely cover dish (so a bit of steam can escape). I use a microwave steamer.
  • Microwave on high about 3 minutes, until carrots are starting to soften but not yet done.
  • Add beans to carrots in dish or steamer. Microwave for another 2 - 3 minutes. Veggies should be crisp tender, or just slightly less than your desired doneness.
  • Drain veggies and set aside. When you are almost ready to serve, heat up some butter in a sauté pan or wok until foamy.
  • Throw in garlic and veggies and stir for just a minute or two, until garlic is fragrant and veggies are coated in butter and garlic.
  • Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
