GREEN BEANS WITH POTATOES AND GARLIC- CLEAN EATING
Here is another great recipe for a tasty side dish to just about anything. The vegetables are the highlight of this dish so make sure that you have fresh produce. If I were to make this again I would probably double the garlic. It tastes great hot or even at room temperature.
Green Beans With Potatoes and Garlic- Clean Eating
Adapted from Martha Rose Shulman
3/4 pound green beans
1 pound red waxy potatoes
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 to 3 large garlic cloves (to taste), minced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 hardboiled eggs, diced (optional)
Wash potatoes and beans.
Cut potatoes in to 2-inch wedges. Trim and break beans in half...
Steam the green beans above 1 inch of boiling water for four to five minutes until tender. Remove from the steamer, and rinse with cold water. Set aside. Add the potatoes, and steam for about 15 minutes or until very tender.
Heat the oil over medium heat in a large, nonstick skillet. Add the garlic, and cook for a minute or so until the garlic is fragrant. Stir in the beans and cook, stirring, for three - five minutes until quite tender and coated with oil (but still bright green).
Gently stir in the potatoes, and add salt and pepper (to taste) (a little red pepper if you want heat). Cook, stirring, until they begin to color lightly. Scatter the diced hard-boiled eggs over the top, cover and turn heat to low. Cook another three minutes. Serve hot or warm.
