Recall a few days ago, when I mentioned that Fall had arrived and we were bringing out the fall favorites like cornbread? Well, it's gone--reverted back to summer--which for us, had just ended three weeks ago! But look at the forecast (or just step outside): 94 degrees F. Indian summer ought to come in December for us. Yes, I am running my AC. And what's really annoying? I just barely (as in last week!) put away the summer clothes...oh well, this recipe is actually a good summer treat as well.
Garlicky Green Beans
3 tbsp. cold pressed olive oil
1 lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
3 cloves garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp coarsely ground pepper
In a cast iron skillet, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add green beans. stirring often, saute beans for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook one minute more. Add a dash of water to the pan (a couple tbsp.) and cover. Turn off heat and let sit 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper and serve.
