If you asked my husband what his favorite recipes are, I’m quite sure this one would be in his top five. It’s super quick and easy but also very tasty. I’m personally not a super huge fan of spicy things, but my husband is, so this is a recipe we can both enjoy – I add crushed red pepper to his and I leave it off mine and the kids.
Spicy Green Beans (serves 1)
Container Checklist: 1 green, 1 oil
1 ¼ cup organic green beans (can be fresh or frozen
1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 t. olive oil
1/4-1/2 t. crushed red pepper (optional)
Heat oil in skillet on stove top over med-high heat. When it is very hot, add the green beans, garlic and red pepper and saute until they are tender, 15-20 min. We like ours to be a little singed, so I don’t stir them very often and let them get a little bit black on the outside.
You can use fresh or frozen green beans (both are approved on the 21 Day Fix!) but until we get our garden up and going, I normally use these frozen ones – the flavor is really good and they are organic.
