These wicked nice green beans are sautéed in a bit of garlic-infused olive oil, Seasoned Salt, black pepper and…
Ranch Dressing Mix! You can use a bit of a packet from the store, or from your fave
spice shop (mine is Penzeys).
•12 oz green beans, washed and trimmed
•1 tbsp garlic-infused olive oil
•1 tbsp ranch dressing mix
•1/4 tsp Seasoned Salt
•1/4 tsp black pepper
Toss the beans with the seasonings and then the oil in a large bowl.
Note: I buy my garlic-infused olive oil at my market, but feel free to use your fave olive or avocado oil.
Add the beans to a hot pan over medium high heat and cook for a minute or two, not stirring, just to let the beans blister a bit.
Add 1/4 cup of water, toss the beans, then cover the pan and cook for five to seven minutes, until the beans are tender crisp and most pan liquids are cooked off.
Add a pat of butter, or don’t, these beans are pretty darned spiffy fresh from the pan.
I haven’t gotten around to trying it yet, but this Ranch and salt and pepper and olive oil and sauté combo could also work a treat with carrots, mebbe broccoli, and ???
