We recommend pairing this side dish with any of our following recipes:
Zesty Green Beans with Lemon and Garlic
- 1 Propane Stove
- 1 lb Green Beans washed and trimmed
- 1 Lemon
- 3 cloves Garlic minced
- 2 cuptbsp Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper to taste
- Red Pepper Flakes for a hint of heat
- Slivered or Sliced Almonds for flavor and texture
- Prepare the Green Beans: Wash the green beans thoroughly and trim the ends. If you prefer a more tender texture, blanch the green beans in boiling water for 2 minutes, then immediately transfer them to an ice bath to stop the cooking process.
- Sauté the Garlic: In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic and sauté for 1-2 minutes until it becomes aromatic. Be careful not to burn the garlic as it can turn bitter.
- Cook the Green Beans: Add the prepared green beans to the skillet. Stir well to coat the beans evenly with the garlic-infused oil. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until the green beans are tender-crisp, stirring occasionally.
- Add Lemon Zest and Juice: Sprinkle lemon zest over the green beans for a burst of citrus flavor. Squeeze the lemon juice of one lemon over the beans, stirring to combine. Begin with half the lemon for flavor, and add more based on preferences.
- Seasoning: Season the green beans with salt and pepper to taste.
- Add optional toppings: For an extra kick of heat, sprinkle red pepper flakes. If you’re searching for a little more crunch, sprinkle the sliced or silvered almonds for some extra texture and flavor
