Green Beans on the side

Green Beans
This provides nice balance to your proteins.  Easy to make, high on taste and good for you. 
This is what you need:
  • Greens Beans – 1 lb, snipped at edges
  • Butter – 1 tbs
  • Oil – 1 tbs (or you can use all butter)
  • Garlic- 2 tsp, minced.
  • Cranberries – A handful, optional
  • Salt to taste
All you need to do is blanch the beans in water which has been generously seasoned with salt for about 4 minutes till the beans turn a brighter green. Drain and plunge in a bowl of ice water. This will help in retaining the crunchiness and color. In a pan, heat the butter + oil. Add minced garlic and fry till fragrant. Add the green beans and toss till nicely coated.
Serve with your favorite protein. We had this as a part of our Thanksgiving lunch so I added cranberries to it.
