Peppered Green Beans

Difficulty: *

Ingredients:

  • 2 Large Handfuls of fresh green beans (about 1/2 pound)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Method:
  1. From the grocery store produce aisle, select two large handfuls of fresh green beans. I guess-timate that's about 1/2 lb.
  2. At home, use a knife to trim off the ends of each bean.
  3. Drop into a pan of boiling water and let cook until just tender, but still crisp. Drain.
  4. In a frying pan, pour 4 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) in the bottom of the pan. Make sure bottom of your frying pan is covered. Turn heat to medium.
  5. Add cooked green beans.
  6. Sprinkle with: 1/2 tsp each of garlic salt, white pepper, black pepper. (Adjust seasoning to suit your family after tasting)
  7. Stir to coat with the oil and pepper. Cook on medium for 3-5 minutes. They should maintain their crispness and not get soggy or mushy.
Serves 4-6.
