Green beans sautéed with onions and garlic makes a delicious side dish!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound fresh green beans, washed, dried and trimmed
½ red onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Sea salt & black pepper to taste
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. (I used a cast iron skillet.) Add the olive oil and green beans. Cook and stir for one minute. This helps to blister the green beans. Cover and cook for another 4 minutes.
Uncover the green beans and stir. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the red onion, garlic and sea salt and black pepper to taste. Cook and stir for a few more minutes. Then add a splash of water or vegetable broth. Cover and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, until the green beans are nice and tender but still bright green.
