1 pound of thin green beans(cleaned and ends chopped off)
1 ½ tbsp. olive oil
1 ½ tbsp. butter
1 clove of garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
½ tsp. fresh lemon juice

Boil water in a large pot, add in green beans. Boil for about 6 minutes and drain. Let sit in a bowl of cold ice water until cool (this helps keep the green color).

In a large skillet, heat your oil and butter over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook for a few minutes. You do not want it to burn so watch carefully. Add in your green beans, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 more minutes and remove from heat. Ready to serve!
