  • 2 pounds fresh green beans cleaned
  • 8 cups boiling water with salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves sliced
  • 1 tablespoon favorite condiment or salt and pepper


  • Blanch the green beans first to allow the bright green color to stay during the sauteing process. Blanching is easy. Bring water to a full boil, add a pinch of salt and add the beans. Leave there for 5-7 minutes and strain. Temper with iced water. 
  • Slice the garlic cloves and add olive oil to a sauteing pan. Saute the garlic and then add the green beans. Season with your favorite condiment or salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes. 
  • Serve on a bowl family style and enjoy. These green beans are crunchy and flavorful perfect addition to the Easter menu or a weekly meal.
