Lemon, Pepper, And Garlic String Beans Recipe

stringbeansIt’s St. Patrick’s Day and I couldn’t go the entire day without posting some sort of green recipe. Today, it’s lemon, pepper, and garlic string beans.

The other day, I wanted to make a vegetable as a side and the only thing we had was a lone can of string beans. So sad, right? I typed string beans into Pinterest to try and get some inspiration, but nothing too exciting was coming up. So I just had to wing it. And wouldn’t you know, this delicious side was born.

Lemon, Pepper, And Garlic String Beans Recipe

What You’ll Need:

  • Can of no-salt added string beans
  • Three gloves of garlic
  • Lemon juice
  • Ground pepper
  • Pinch of salt

What You’ll Do:

Dump a can of green beans into a nonstick pan. Saute for five or so minutes over medium heat.

While that’s going, chop the garlic, then add it to the pan. Saute another three or so minutes.

Remove from heat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Add about two tablespoons of lemon juice.


Serve warm.
