  1. In a skillet on medium to high heat, melt the butter. Add garlic and green beans and toss to coat in butter.
  2. Allow beans to cook in skillet for 7-8 minutes or until bright green and tender yet crispy. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  3. (You can also boil your beans first for 3 minutes until they are bright in colour, and then add them to the pan to coat in garlic and butter for 1-2 minutes.)
  4. Season generously with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. If desired add zest of half a lemon and roughly chopped almonds.
  5. Enjoy!
