This fresh green beans recipe comes to you from my cousin, Heather. Whenever she comes to visit we try to cook at least 1 meal at home (we both enjoy cooking). This time, she was in charge of the sides and a great job she did! Fresh green beans are always a delight and with minimal butter, they have flavor without breaking your fat budget. Chunks of garlic throughout give you the full flavor with antioxidants to boot. A simple, yet classic dish, this fresh green beans and butter saute is a great one to bring out around the Holidays!
