Garlicky Green Beans

Yummy green beans coated with garlic make a delicious side dish!

1 pound fresh green beans, stems removed
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil
3-4 cloves garlic, minced

Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add green beans and salt. Boil just until beans are al dente, testing after 10 minutes (it can take up to 10 minutes longer, depending on the beans); drain and plunge into ice water to stop cooking. Chill until ready to use.

At serving time, add olive oil to the drained pot and place over medium high heat. Lightly sprinkle bottom of pot with salt, if desired, and freshly ground black pepper and add the minced garlic. Stir for about 1 minute, until garlic is fragrant.

Add the chilled green beans; stir well to coat with oil and garlic; cover for two or three minutes so beans will heat through. Stir and test to be sure beans are warm all the way through.
