Sauteed Wax Beans with Garlic

I am often asked for dietary recipes, good for those who care about their body or want to have a balanced and healthy diet. To be honest, I cook a lot on a diet, but it seems like the obvious things to me seem impossible to others - cooking with a little oil, for example - vegetables in light cooked versions for many are tasteless and flavorful food.

Well, let me tell you that these beans (green or yellow), my favorite garnish for a baked fish or a slice of grilled / baked meat. I really recommend the preparation method, it is healthy, tasty and very simple.

Ingredients

Wax beans
500 g
or green beans
Green onions
2 pieces
you can also use plain white onions, but nutritionists do not recommend it - the lighter is the green one
Extravirgin olive oil
1 tbsp
or sunflower oil
Garlic cloves
2 pieces
Salt
0.5 tsp
to taste

Step by step

1

The beans are cleaned and washed - you can break them into shorter pieces or leave them whole.

2

Now you have 2 options to cook them:

- Steamed, that's what I did - it keeps all its vitamins and the pods taste better.

- boil in water, simpler and classic.

However, in both variants do not boil them too much, about 15 minutes, to be a little al dente.

3

When the pods are almost cooked, prepare and heat a deep pan well.

Add half a glass of water, 1 tablespoon of oil and finely chopped green onions. Let it cook like this until almost all the water evaporates, and the onion is cooked.

4

Add the cooked pods to the pan with the hardened onions, mix well - leave for 5 minutes on the fire.

5

Then add the crushed garlic, salt and mix well.

6

Immediately turn off the heat, put a lid on the pan with pods and let the flavors penetrate for 5 minutes.

7

You can serve them as a healthy and tasty food or garnish.

Good appetite!
