This recipe was shared by Jeremy, one of the students participating in Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day event that was hosted by The Tutorial Center, Inc., back in May. The simple dish was a big hit with all the students and staff, proving once again that tasty food doesn’t have to be complicated.
Note from Christine: I made these the other night and started picking on them straight from the skillet as I got the rest of dinner together. By the time I plated the food there was only one small serving of green beans left in the pan! I reluctantly spooned the remainders on my husbands plate, making a mental note to always make extra—but there won’t be any extra.
- 1 pound green beans (fresh or frozen)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- salt & pepper
NOTE: If you’re using fresh green beans, boil them until they’re half cooked. Then remove them from the heat and “shock” them by running them under cold water. This stops the cooking process.
- Put olive oil and garlic into a large frying pan over medium-high heat, saute for about a minute.
- Add the green beans and cook until tender.
- Salt & pepper to taste.
