The actual green beans are inside of the slender, edible pods.

One of the most common vegetables you will find at the supermarket, green beans are also one of the healthiest vegetables you can eat. This slender, green vegetable is rich in vitamins K, C and A and is also an excellent source of dietary fiber. Green beans are served as a stand-alone side dish, or used as a part of a larger dish, such as green bean casserole. Steaming and then sauteing them in garlic will significantly enhance the flavor of this versatile vegetable.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 lb. green beans
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • Two cloves minced garlic
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
