"I cooked my string beans in some salted boiling water for a few minutes (3-4 minutes), I used frozen string beans. We like our veggies crunchy so I undercook a little bit and then quickly rinse with ..." See morecold water. I sauteed the garlic in the olive oil. I threw the green beans in a bowl poured garlic and oil over the whole thing and squeezed 1/2 of a fresh lemon and tossed again. Added a tiny bit of salt and it was great. I think 1/4 cup of oil is too much. 2 tablespoons is more than enough. Follow your common sense when cooking and you'll never go wrong. Thanks for sharing. "

My friend's overweight 13 year old daughter won't eat ..." See moreany vegetables, she told her mom the only ones she can eat are green beans. So I made her a batch and she ate the whole thing! I used 4 garlic cloves and sunflower oil instead of oil (my preference). I also substitute a little white vinegar in place of some of the lemon juice."
