Spicy Garlic Green Beans
By thesavvykitchen on June 09, 2014
Here is an extremely quick and easy side dish that is bursting with flavor. Fresh green beans are quickly blanched, and then pan-fried in garlic, butter, and red pepper flakes for some kick. The green beans maintain some of their crunch and therefore keep most of their nutrients. This could be on your table in under 15 minutes. Enjoy!
- 1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 4 tsp. minced garlic
- Pinch red pepper flakes
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add green beans and simmer until green beans begin to soften, about five minutes. Drain green beans.
In a large skillet, add butter. Once melted, add garlic and cool for 1 minute or until light brown. Add green beans, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Cook for an additional 5 minutes or until green beans are tender.
