Garlic String Beans

String beans are one of the ONLY vegetables that my husband will eat. He loves when I make them this way, and it’s VERY fast.


  • 1/2 lb fresh string beans, rinsed, ends removed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a medium sauce pan, bring water to a boil.
  2. Add string beans to boiling water (i use tongs)
  3. Boil on med/high for 10-15 minutes until cooked to desired tenderness (i like ’em crispy)
  4. Drain string beans and set aside
  5. Add olive oil and garlic to pan and return to heat. Stir frequently until fragrant (about 2 minutes)
  6. Return string beans to pan, toss to coat, and add salt & pepper to taste.
