What's for Dinner? #1: Garlic Green Beans

Part 1:

Part 2:

The side dish last night was Garlic Green Beans!  Now the fact that I fixed these...and actually tasted them is a feat!  I HATE green beans and have ever since I was fed too many as a baby.  Apparently I loved them then.  I thought I'd give it a shot and see what happened.  As it turns out, I loaded them with SO much garlic, that I couldn't even taste the green beans.  So they weren't quite as bad as I expected.  However, because of the amount of garlic, my hubby & son didn't like them.  You win some and you lose some I guess!  So, onto the instructions:

Step 1:  Gather the ingredients.

I used the following:
  • 1 bag of frozen green beans
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic (I suggest using only 1/2 tsp)
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/8 tsp of white pepper
  • 2 tsp of olive oil
Step 2:  Steam the green beans, or gently boil them in enough water to cover them for 8 to 10 minutes or until crispy.

Step 3:  When the above is completed, you want to combine them with the garlic, salt and pepper.  Then drizzle the oil across the top, serve & enjoy!!

Final recipe in this series follows in the next post!
