Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Bring a saucepan of water to a boil. Add the beans to the boiling water and cook for 1-3 minutes or until preferred doneness.
  2. Strain and plunge them into ice-cold water to stop them from overcooking and keep them al dente and bright green. Drain and pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Add the oil, garlic, to the saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the beans to the oil; season to taste and toss to coat.
  4. Remove from the heat. Divide between serving plates or platter and serve topped with nuts and feta.

Tips

You can blanch the beans in boiling water, steam, or pan-fry. Using an ice bath stalls the cooking process and keeps the beans bright in color and al dente. They are just as delicious cold as they are warm.
