Sauteed Green Beans with lemon zest


1/2 lb green beans, trimmed and cut in half (frozen and pre cut is fine also)
1 tbsp oil
1/2 an onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
around 1/2 tsp garlic powder
zest from 1/2 of a lemon
A good squeeze of lemon
salt and pepper to taste

Bring some water to a boil in a pan and boil green beans for around 4 mins and drain (I’ve  used frozen green beans and I didn’t need to do this extra step , I just went straight to the steps below)

In same pan, heat oil, add chopped onion and cook till a bit soft (4 mins or so)
Add green beans and cook on medium-high for 2 mins, add minced garlic, salt, pepper, and garlic powder and cook for 5 or more minutes till green beans brown in places.
Turn off heat and add lemon juice and zest. Mix and done!

All recipes are basically estimates 🙂
