Garlic Green Beans

Blanch the green beans (Step 1) up to a day ahead. When you are ready to prepare supper, just toss the green beans in the skillet and saute'.

1 1/2 lb. tiny green beans (haricots verts), trimmed
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1. Cook green beans in boiling salted water to cover 3 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain. Plunge green beans into ice water to stop the cooking process, and drain.
2. Melt butter with oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat; add green beans, garlic, salt, and pepper, and saute' 4 to 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

This is a Southern Living recipe. Good southern green beans.
