Garlicky Lemony Green Beans

The beans work out to 1sp/70kcal per serving 

YOU WILL NEED: (Serves 2)

170g bag trimmed fine green beans

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 teaspoons garlic puree

(See HERE for review)

juice of 1/4 of a lemon

black pepper


Simply pierce the bag containing the beans in a few places and microwave for 2 minutes. Alternatively, steam or boil the beans for

2-3 minutes in a pan of boiling water

on the hob.

Tip into a colander and rinse under plenty of cold water. This stops the cooking process and keeps the beans a vibrant green colour.

Heat the oil, garlic paste, lemon juice and black pepper in a small frying pan.

Tip the drained beans into the hot garlicky, lemony oil and mix well to coat evenly.

Cook on a medium heat for about 6-8 minutes turning frequently until they just start to 'catch' in places. They still need to have a good bite to them so don't let them go soggy.

Serve as an accompaniment to your chosen main meal and wait for the zesty flavours to dance on your tongue!
