With Julia Childs 100th birthday passing I adapted my recipe from hers for green beans for dinner and boy it was good!  I could not stop eating them, even the kiddos had seconds!

 By *blanching them before cooking as she does they stay nice and green. Also by blanching you can freeze or store in fridge, I will tell you how to do below recipe.


Best Fresh Green Bean Recipe

*Blanch a bunch of fresh green beans, store what you wish then use the rest for recipe


1 -2 TBL olive oil

3 TBL butter



capfull dried onion (aprox 1-2 TBL)

3 tsp minced garlic (aprox 3 cloves)

2 tsp+  soy sauce

lemon juice

1.  put olive oil and butter in pan and melt over med/low (do not brown)

2. add the rest of ingredients and the beans toss to coat.

3. Cover and cook over med/low until about desired done-ness

4. Uncover and cook few minutes longer for water from beans cooks off and butter coats beans well.

5. Drizzle with a  little fresh lemon juice.

6. Taste and add more soy, salt or pepper to taste.


Must have a large bowl of ice water ready and waiting.

Bring 6 to 8 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot over medium-high heat. When the water is at a rolling boil, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt per quart of water,add the prepared fresh green beans. Cover,  bring the water quickly to the boil, as soon as it boils remove the cover.

Boil uncovered 2 to 3 minutes for thin (french beans) or if you cut bite sized, I cook 4 to 5 minutes for whole round beans. You want to make sure not to over cook they should still have a crunch to the bite. This quick cooking kills the enzyme in the bean.

How long you blanch them in hot water is how long you should have in the ice bath. The faster you chill the beans the greener and fresher they will be.  Set aside til ready to use or if making in advance, dry them thoroughly and  refrigerate in an airtight container or plastic bag or use seal a meal to freeze.







Momma Says: Weather you grow your own or buy from farmers market, enjoy the gifts of the garden and save some for winter.
