Garlic Green Beans

We discovered this green bean recipe two summers ago and have been making it ever since. I never knew fresh green beans tasted so good, and were actually so easy to make. I was raised on can green beans, but fresh is definitely better. Way Better!!!


Garlic Green Beans
from the kitchen of Tina Hudgens

1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp minced garlic
pinch of Cayenne Pepper
1/4 cup finely diced mushrooms
2 cups fresh green beans
pinch of sea salt
pinch of sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup chopped pecans
fresh pepper, to your liking

Melt butter in a skillet on medium heat; add in minced garlic, cayenne pepper and diced mushrooms. Cook until heated through. Add in fresh green beans, sea salt and a pinch of sugar. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes. Add in 1/4 cup water, cover and cook for additional 6 minutes; uncover and boil until water evaporates. Season with fresh pepper and toss with chopped pecans.
