  • 1 pound fresh green beans (trimmed and snapped in half if needed)
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced or finely chopped)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ - ½ cup shredded parmesan or mozzarella (optional)


  • Heat a large pan with oil and butter. When hot add the green beans. Cook, stirring often until the beans begin blistering and browning in spots, about 5 minutes. The beans should be tender-crisp.
  • Add the garlic to the pan and continue cooking for another minute or so until the garlic is cooked through.
  • If adding cheese just sprinkle it on top before serving.
