A delicious side dish with an earthy flavor.
Snap or cut the stem ends off the green beans, rinse them off and add to a medium size bowl. Add the olive oil (reserving about 2 teaspoons of olive oil for the skillet), garlic powder, sage, wasabi powder, and sea salt.
Toss the green beans until coated. Set aside. Slice the garlic into pieces about ¼-inch thick and set aside for a moment.
Heat a large skillet on medium heat. Add the green beans to the skillet and the reserved 2 teaspoons olive oil. Add the butter and garlic and stir (if using regular green beans, let them sauté in the pan for about 6 minutes before adding the butter and garlic). Continue stirring.
Keep stirring until the garlic starts to turn a light brown or golden color (about 6 minutes) which is about the time when the green beans should be done. If the garlic is cooking too fast and starting to turn a dark brown color, turn the heat down just a bit. Some of the thinner green beans should be a little soft while others should be a bit crisp. Try a quick sample and salt to taste.
Serve hot right out of the skillet as a side dish.
This is a stick-to-your-ribs, warm-you-up, side dish. This is not the conventional creamed spinach recipe that calls for tons of butter and cheese, it is low-fat and delicious. What is also great about this recipe is that it is a total “pantry” dish that is a quick go-to on a busy day.
