Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 pound green beans, trimmed

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 large shallot, chopped

2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced


  1. Bring a medium saucepot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water until the beans are cool. Drain well.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and tender, about 2 minutes. Add the green beans and garlic and increase the heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the garlic has softened and the beans are heated through, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
