Green Beans With Garlic-Herb Butter

2005-10-11

Green beans have many common names – string beans, pole beans, snap beans, zydeco – just to name a few. Two of my favorite ways to eat green beans is to break it off the plant and eat it fresh; the other is pickled. I just wonder if I could dance the “zydeco” – does that mean I have to dance with a string bean.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 celery rib, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp jarred minced garlic (I like roasted)
  • 1/8 tsp dried rosemary (optional)
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • cayenne pepper to taste

Directions

Step 1

Bring salted water to a boil in a large saucepan; add beans. Cover and cook 10-15 minutes or until crisp-tender then drain.

Step 2

Plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process, then drain again.

Step 3

In a pan, combine the onion, celery, garlic, rosemary, parsley and salt. Sauté until tender.

Step 4

Add the green beans and mix well. Cook until desired tenderness.
