Heat the olive oil in a skillet on medium heat. Add green beans making sure that olive oil is distributed evenly, season with salt depending on your taste. Saute for about 10-15 minutes until softened but still crispy. Add minced garlic coating all green beans evenly for about 2-3 minutes, not too long as you don't want the garlic to brown at all--this can leave a bitter flavor. Immediately take off heat, let sit for another 2-3 minute Enjoy!
I love garlic and usually use the 6 cloves, but you can use less to your taste.
