I just love green beans. They’re one of my favorite vegetables, a favorite with the kids, and so easy to make.
Garlic Green Beans
1 lb fresh green beans – with ends cut off and broken into 1 in pieces
2 cloves garlic – crushed
Put green beans and garlic in a pan, cover with water. Add salt to taste. Place on stove and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer for about 15 minutes for crisp beans or 45 minutes for softer beans. My kids will only eat green beans if they’re not chewy so I just boil them longer until they’re nice and soft.
Drain any extra water and serve hot.

Green beans are a favorite here, too! This recipe is an excellent one; there’s nothing like fresh garlic on them.
I love runner beans – they bring back so many memories for me of unpodding them in my parents’ garden!
Looks like a delicious vegetable recipe! I need to add more veggies to our diet, this looks like a great addition to a dinner.
Great veggie recipe! Yum.
I never thought about using garlic in green beans. Sounds healthier than the bacon grease laden beans I grew up on. Although, those are still my favorite.
