Think green beans are boring? Think again.
Garlic and Chili Green Beans:
- 500 grams green beans
- 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
- 2 small red chili peppers, finely sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 cups water
- salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until just tender but they still have a bite. Drain and shock in an ice bath.
Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the garlic and red chili peppers and saute as they release their flavor. Add the green beans to the skillet and combine while heating the green beans again. Remove and finish with a sprinkle of finishing salt and pepper if desired.
