Recipe Type: Side
Ingredients
  • 1 package of green beans, cleaned
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper
  • ¼ of a fresh lemon
  • Very good butter
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves
Instructions
  1. In a small pot, cook the green beans in salted boiling water, with a bit of olive oil, for about 5 minutes or until tender but still bright green. Drain.
  2. Add a knob of butter to the pan and turn the heat on medium. Squeeze the lemon juice into the pan. Swirl it around and stir with a spoon until melted.
  3. Throw the green beans back in and saute for about 8 minutes or so. Turn off the heat, coarsely tear the fresh mint leaves into the pan, season with salt and pepper. Shake everything around in the pan so that the residual heat infuses all of the flavors.
