Sautéed Haricot Verts
When I say the recipe takes only 15 minutes to prepare, I’m not exaggerating. 15 minutes is all you need to make tender, healthy and the best green beans ever.
Here’s a thing. When it comes to green beans recipes that you can find around Internet, there is one problem….
…they are either severely undercooked and taste like grass, or they are so overcooked, that they loose all their healthy properties and vibrant green color.
Which camp are you in?:)
I have to tell you, for many years I was overcooking my green beans big time. It would usually take 30 or 40 minutes to roast them and I would always end up having too many overcooked brownish-like beans.
They were edible though, but not something you would put on a table when you have guests over.
Recently, I discovered a way to make green beans fast, healthy and delicious.
In addition, because cooking time is only 15 minutes, they don’t loose their pretty green color.
Are you in? Well, I hope so:) Because, believe me, this is the only Pan Sautéed Green Beans Recipe you’ll ever need. Even your kids will like it.
Flavors and satisfaction guaranteed.
