Simple Fresh Green Beans

Slightly adapted from The Pioneer Woman 

1 lb green beans

1 cup chopped onion

2 cloves garlic

1/2 cup chopped red pepper

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 cup vegetable broth

Freshly ground black pepper

Snap the stem ends off the green beans or chop them off.

Heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the onions and garlic and cook for a minute.  Add the green beans and cook until bright green.

Add the vegetable broth, red pepper, salt and black pepper.  Bring to a boil.  Turn heat to low and partially cover with lid.  Cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated and green beans have softened but are still tender crisp.
