The freshness of summer truly arrives with fresh green beans. Our family loves to enjoy green beans with our summer grill favorites. This is an easy way to add veggies to your meal and enjoy a summertime classic. Almost every Saturday morning, our family heads downtown to the Des Moines Farmer’s Market. This is a must-see if you live in the area. We used to go just to walk around and enjoy the beautiful summer mornings but as our family is moving towards eating more organic food this is a fun way to buy organic and meet the people who take part in growing our meals. Buying local has many advantages and as we learn more about eating organic and living green, I know we will enjoy the farmer’s market even more.
Here is the simple recipe for these delicious green beans:
1 pound fresh green beans
1 T. olive oil
2-4 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
Snap or trim ends off green beans.
Heat oil in pan on medium heat.
Add beans and garlic to pan.
Saute until tender.
