1-pound fresh green beans
5 cloves garlic, chopped
2 shallots, chopped
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
Trim the green beans. Bring a pot of water to boil and add the green beans. Boil for 4 minutes (not more) and immediately drain and rinse under cold water.
Heat the oil in a sauté pan. Sauté the garlic and shallots for 4-6 minutes or until soft. Add the green beans and stir. Add the lemon juice and stir. Cook for 1 minute and remove from the heat. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Serve warm or at room temperature.
