French Green Beans with Onions
2 lbs French green beans
1 onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1 tsp Herbes de Provence
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1. In a large pot, boil 6-8 cups of water at medium heat. Season with about a
tablespoon of salt and add the green beans.
2. Cook the beans until bright green, about 1-2 minutes. Remove the beans
and transfer to an ice bath to shock the beans and set the color. Once
cooled, fish out the beans and dry in a baking pan lined with paper towels.
3. In a large sauce pan, melt the butter with the olive oil at medium heat.
Saute the onions and garlic until slightly browned. Season with salt and
pepper. Add the Herbes de Provence and mix.
4. Add the beans and saute until heated through. Season with salt and
pepper. Serve right away. An extra drizzling of olive oil is also a good way
to finish this dish.
