Great Recipe for 2 Veggies in one dish from this months Gourmet.


1 1/2 lb green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced lengthwise
1/2 lb arugula, tough stems discarded and leaves chopped (6 cups)
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lemon zest
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Cook beans in a 6-quart pot of boiling salted water, uncovered, until tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain in a colander.

Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then sauté garlic, stirring, until golden, about 1 minute. Add beans, arugula, zest, salt, and pepper and cook, tossing, until arugula is wilted, about 2 minutes.

Makes 6 side-dish servings.
