Green Beans with Garlic and Lemon – Phase 1
 
Green Beans with Garlic and Lemon – Phase 1
Recipe from The South Beach Diet - Parties & Holidays Cookbook


Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 5 minutes

Green beans bring lovely color to the Thanksgiving table. Look for the long, skinny French beans called haricots verts. They’re very tender and extra special.

1 pound green beans, trimmed
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Bring a medium saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add beans, return to a boil, and cook until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse under very cold water to stop cooking. Drain again and pat dry.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add garlic and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Add beans and zest; cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are warmed through, about 2 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.



MAKE-AHEAD: Beans can be blanched up to a day in advance.
