Garlic Buttered Green Beans

The veggie trend continues here at Fit Chef Chicago and nothing says spring like fresh green beans.  As a kid, green beans were abundant in my mom’s garden.  I don’t ever remember her cooking them, instead, we ate them as a snack, dipped in ranch salad dressing, much like a carrot.  Raw green beans are crispy, slightly juicy and just the right amount of earthy and to this day, I still love snacking on a handful of raw green beans.  However, I really love cooking with fresh green beans.  Forget the canned stuff – if you’ve never had fresh green beans cooked, you’re missing out.  Sweet, slightly crispy and not at all canned mushy green glob – fresh green bean are well worth the extra effort!
