A simply delicious and nutritious side dish, these Green Beans with Garlic are a fabulous compliment to any meal. Green beans with garlic and olive oil are actually my moms favorite side dish.
Although she prepares hers significantly different than I do, I have to give her credit for inspiring me to make this dish.
I suppose that it is fair to say that I never expected Chad to even look at these (they are green after all). The fact that he took such beautiful pictures of the final dish is amazing. Munchkin and I on the other hand were huge fans!
We enjoyed our with Meatloaf with Balsamic Glaze and it was a fantastic combination. Munchkin’s required a quick steam to soften them up a little. She is not fond of veggies that are that crunchy, yet. I loved them just blanched and warmed in the garlic olive oil. Delicious!!! I can’t wait to have these again.
