Green Beans with Garlic is super delicious and easy to make. The fresh green beans or string beans are pan-fried and then tossed with a little garlic.

This an easy and simple Green Beans with Garlic recipe I enjoy making. I eat a lot of green beans in vegetable stews, meat stews, et For one reason or another, I like making it with Fleur de Sel, which is “a hand-harvested sea salt collected by workers who scrape only the top layer of salt before it sinks to the bottom of large salt pans.” Wikipedia, 2012

Fleur de Sel and Green Beans with Garlic is a perfect marriage. The salt gives the beans a delicate flavor and enhances the garlic flavor. This type of salt must be used in moderation because it can make food taste very salty.

String beans with Garlic

I often buy string or green beans that have already been cleaned and washed. If you can find ready-to-use bags of string beans in your supermarket, buy one or two; you will save time on food preparation and cooking. If you have someone in your household who loves to trim, clean and wash fresh beans, you are lucky. If not, you are out of luck. Buying packaged greens beans is the perfect choice for you.

How to make the green beans dish

The recipe only uses beans, fresh garlic, oil, Fleur de Sel, and water – Very simple. The fresh garlic is cooked in the oil for about 1 to 2 minutes, and all the ingredients are added, and everything is cooked covered for 20 minutes. I added very little water because I wanted the beans to slowly cook in their juice.

It is almost like pan roasting the beans. When ready, the beans are tender but still crunchy, just the way they should be eaten. I hope you will make my recipe for Green Beans with Garlic and share your thoughts.
