Fresh Green Beans

chicken teriyaki vegetables

 

Wash and cut the tips off fresh green beans. I cut long ones in half.

Place about ½ inch of water in a pan. Add green beans. If you have a steamer basket, that’s even better.

Bring to boil.

Reduce heat, cover and simmer over low heat for about 10 – 15 minutes until beans are crisp-tender. Do not overcook.

Drain water.

Throw in just enough butter to lightly coat green beans.

Salt very sparingly.

You can throw in almond slivers to dress them up a bit.

Some people like garlic added. You can use either fresh minced garlic, or garlic powder. (fresh has

the added health benefits).
