total time


250g/ 8oz green beans (, trimmed, Note 1)

1 tsp salt

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (or... butter!)

2 garlic cloves (, finely minced, ~ 2 tsp, do not use jar or garlic crusher, Note 2)

1/8 tsp salt

1 pinch black pepper


Blanch beans: Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1 teaspoon of salt. Add beans, cook for 4 minutes (they will turn bright green), drain, then rinse under cold tap water to cool. (There's really no need to shock in ice water). Shake off excess water.

Sauté: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add green beans and garlic. Toss (or stir!) for 2 minutes until the garlic is golden and crispy. Add salt and pepper, then toss.

Serve: Transfer beans to serving dish. Serve warm!

Prepare ahead: Blanch beans per step 1, cool and dry, store in fridge until required. When ready to serve, just toss with garlic. It's an instant on-demand side!
