Great Green Beans

  • 2 lbs of fresh green beans (serves 4)

  • 1 onion chopped finely

  • 1 Tablespoon butter

  • salt

  • pepper

  • nutmeg

  1. image Cut the tips off both ends of the grean beans and rinse them thoroughly.

  2. Bring enough water to a boil in a large pot such that you could cover the green beans. Boil the green beans until they are al dente, which usually takes around ten minutes of cooking. Drain into a colander, and rinse under cold tap water.

  3. In a large pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and stir for a minute or two until the onion begins to become transparent. Add the green beans back into the pot.

  4. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg to taste, stir once or twice and let it simmer uncovered for 10 more minutes.

  5. Serve hot and enjoy!

Cook’s Notes
  • Did you know? Rinsing the green beans under cold water immediately after boiling makes them keep their nice green color? Yumm!
