Green Beans with Garlic and Parmesan Cheese

We received the first picking of green beans in our CSA basket last week! They were slender, blemish free and almost velvety. I am  not very creative cooking green beans, usually just steaming them and drizzling with a little butter. However, in our newspaper last week I was intrigued when I saw this recipe. The only change I made was to add garlic.

Wash and trip stem ends of green beans.

Heat 1 T. olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add 4 c. beans, cover and cook for about 8-10 minutes. (we like our beans still a bit crunchy) Stir several times and reduce heat if  they are browning too quickly. Sprinkle with 2 T. grated Parmesan cheese, one clove minced garlic, salt and freshly ground pepper.

Continue cooking for a few more minutes, stirring several times, until the cheese starts to brown.

This made the perfect accompaniment with new parsley potatoes and grilled beef filet! Click here for potato instructions.

This method of cooking fresh beans have taken that simple vegetable to a whole new level! The flavor was fantastic and the slightly browned cheese added some salty crispiness.

I am anxiously awaiting my next CSA…more green beans please!!

And…more new potatoes!!

    Mmmmm! Do you think I can try this recipe with frozen whole green beans? Do I need to thaw them first? I’m having my sister and husband for supper tomorrow night and wanted to make green beans, so I’d like to try this. She’s gluten intolerant so do you have any other food ideas? I was going to grill chicken breasts and bake potatoes, but after looking at your new potatoes I think I’ll dig some out of my garden instead!

    • I would thaw them and pat them as dry as possible, and it should be OK… Why don’t you make some of my gluten free muffins that I have on my blog. Use the pull down recipe menu and check under breads. Do you want me to bring you some gluten free flours when I come to our Bible study tomorrow?
      See you then!

    Great recipe. I love Parmesan cheese and this is such a clever way to taste all its goodness!
    I recently wrote an article on how real Parmesan cheese is made and on its nutritional value. Check it out and let me know your thoughts, I would really appreciated it!
