I love fresh green beans and this time of year they always seem like the perfect pairing with any grilled food. A few weeks ago, we had them with these turkey burgers and they were the perfect pair!
The good thing about green beans, is that they're a pretty good people-pleaser. Even someone who is picky about what vegetables they'll eat (ahem.....my husband) will enjoy a good fresh green bean. Now I'm not going to say you can't use frozen in this recipe, but there's something about a good fresh green bean with a slight crunch to it that you just can't replicate.
I came up with this recipe on my own with ingredients that I had on hand, and you probably will have these ingredients to.
Sauteed Green Beans
2 cups fresh green beans, ends cut off
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 tsp olive oil
2 Tbsp lite soy sauce
fresh cracked black pepper to taste
Heat olive oil over medium heat in saute pan. Add green beans and garlic. Stir in soy sauce.
Cook until garlic is translucent and green beans have softened slightly.
