Crispy Green Beans with Pesto
Health Highlights


1 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
3 cup Green/yellow string beans, raw (ends trimmed and chopped into 1" pieces)
1/4 cup Basil pesto (homemade or store-bought)
1 tbsp Pine nuts, dried (toasted)


Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet. Cook garlic on medium-high heat for about 30 seconds, remove from skillet and set aside.

Add beans to the same skillet and sauté for about 6 minutes or until beans are cooked but still crispy. Return garlic to the skillet and cook an additional 30 seconds (just enough to quickly reheat garlic). Remove from skillet and cool down a bit.

Toss with pesto, sprinkle with pine nuts and serve.
