Savory Green Bean Sautée

I am constantly looking for new ways to spice up my dinners. During farm season we tend to eat a lot of the same veggies over and over again and inevitably my husband gets bored of them. It can be challenging to work 9-5 all week and then have the energy to go think of a healthy way to incorporate what he brought me from the farm into a meal.

It is especially difficult for me to get him to eat and enjoy string beans. This is quite frustrating to me as it is one of my FAVORITE summer vegetables. I love them in salads, casseroles, or raw and fresh picked from the field (our dog Rangeley's persona favorite treat).

I am pleased to announce that this summer I finally created a recipe which made Nick enjoy eating his green beans! I combined some of my favorite flavors to create a savory sautéed side of green beans that will make you beg for seconds! All my garlic lovers this one is definitely for you!

It's quick, easy and simply delicious! So stop by the stand, pick up the ingredients and whip this up for your next meal! You are sure to get compliments!

Ingredients:

1 LB string beans rinsed and trimmed
1 TBS sesame oil (you can substitute EVOO or coconut oil if you like)
4 cloves of garlic (minced)
1 inch of fresh ginger grated (or 1/2 tsp of ground ginger)
Salt and pepper to taste

Serving size 4

  1. Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. I personally prefer to use a cast iron skillet, but anything will work!
  2. Place your trimmed and cleaned green beans in the skillet or pan, sprinkle with sat and pepper and sautée for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger and sautée for another 5 min or until green beans are tender.
  4. Remove from heat, serve and enjoy!

Yes that's really it! How simple and easy was that?! I made this recipe one night when I was in a pinch and needed a quick side dish for a meal I was making for my sister in law, and after rave reviews from her and my husband it has become a staple!

I hope you give this a try next time ur standing in front of your fresh Krupski Farms green beans, and let me know what you think!
