A simple side dish to accompany any main meal – fresh, crunchy and wholesome.
250g green beans
2 garlic cloves
½ tsp red chilli flakes
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
Trim the ends off the green beans and cut the lemon into thick round slices, removing any seeds.
In a pan on medium high heat, add butter. Once the butter has melted add the green beans and slices of lemon. Allow to simmer for a minute before adding crushed garlic, chilli flakes, salt and pepper. Toss to coat beans well.
Cook for another 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn heat down slightly if the beans are starting to burn.
Enjoy while warm. For an additional crunch add lightly toasted almonds or pumpkin seeds.
