Be a lazy cook, & still impress with this yummy side dish! This was actually what I served to my fiance along with an entree, the very first time I EVER cooked for him! He was so impressed! He thought for sure I had some amazing & complicated secret on how to make them! But I didn't! Take took me a total of 15 mins to cook! He kept taking a little bit, then coming back for more & more of them. *Note: This was when we first started dating aka pre-vegetable loving days ;)
Tamari (very similar to Soy Sauce with less sodium) or Soy Sauce approx 2 Tbl
Garlic freshly minced approx 4 cloves
Olive Oil approx 1/4 cup
Green Beans (fresh or frozen) approx 5 cups or 1/2 bag frozen Chili Flakes to taste if desired
How to make it:
1) Heat frying pan with olive oil.
2) Add minced garlic cook approx 30 secs.
3) Add beans and Tamari (& Chili Flakes if spiciness desired)
4) Cook until warm but still firm approx 5 mins and probably 10 mins for frozen.
Great paired with Red Wine & Beef Stroganoff! See my recipe here
