  • generous handful green beens
  • 2 tablespoons butter divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (not extra virgin)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • squirt lemon juice
  • extra virgin olive oil to garnish


  • Rinse the green beans. Snap off the tips and pull off the strings that run on both sides.
  • Heat a tablespoon of butter and olive oil in a frying pan. Spread the green beans in a single layer. Cook over medium heat for a minute. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir a few times then spread in a single layer once more. Cook for another minute. Sprinkle with a little more salt and pepper, stir and spread the beans again and cook for another minute. Scoop out the beans and set aside.
  • Melt the remaining butter in the frying pan. Stir the garlic into the hot oil. Over medium-low heat, cook the garlic, with occasional stirring, until golden brown. Scoop out the garlic and set aside.
  • Add the lemon juice to the pan. Stir. Add the green beans back into the pan. Cook for one minute, stirring often.
  • Pile the cooked green beans on a plate. Pour whatever liquid remains in the pan over the beans. Spoon the toasted garlic on top of the beans. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and serve.
