We had garlic burgers the other day with creamy farmer’s cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo.  We needed a fresh, light side to go with it.  Green beans was the verdict.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 to a pound of fresh green beans, stems snipped, washed
  • 4 tablespoons feta cheese
  • juice of half a lemon
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil (I used coconut oil – gives it a different taste, but still really good)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Put a 1/2 inch of water in a sauté pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Add beans and cover.  Cook on medium high heat until tender with just a little bit of crunch.
  3. Drain the beans and return them to the pan.  Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and toss to coat.
  4. Plate the green beans and sprinkle with lemon juice, feta, salt and pepper.
