Tasty Thursdays: "Garlicky" Green Beans

Thursday, December 29, 2011


String beans are one of my favorite vegetables, and a fun way to jazz them up is with garlic! I found the following recipe on Delish & it serves 8 people.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pound(s) green beans, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon(s) minced fresh parsley
  • 3 tablespoon(s) minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon(s) chopped fresh tarragon or 2 teaspoons dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • Freshly ground pepper to taste
Directions:
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place a large bowl of ice water next to the stove.
2. Add half the green beans to the boiling water and cook until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer the beans with a slotted spoon to the ice water to cool. Repeat with the remaining beans. Place a kitchen towel on a baking sheet and use a slotted spoon to transfer the beans from the ice water; blot dry with another towel.
3. Just before serving, heat oil in a large Dutch oven or large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the green beans and stir. Add parsley, tarragon, salt and pepper and cook, stirring, until heated through, 1 to 3 minutes.

I'm not big on green beans and that's probably because I haven't quite found a recipe that I'd enjoy. I think I want to try this just to see if I really like green beans. I love garlic so this must be good :D
