Green Beans (Steamed)
A quick, easy, and healthy way of cooking vegetables are to steam them.

Green Beans
Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste

1. Wash and cut Green Beans as desired, place in steaming basket.
2. Bring water to boil and steam the cut green beans (covered) for about  5-minutes or until desired tenderness is reached (we like ours a bit crunchy).*
3. Toss the green beans into a bowl, add the juice from a freshly squeezed lemon (don’t use a whole lemon, too much is no good), a teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a dab of butter and finally salt and pepper (to taste).

*It’s important to cook Green Beans because they do contain ‘lectins,’ which may be harmful if you eat a lot of the green beans.

Hint: You can save the water that was used for steaming and use it for soups or other dishes that need water while cooking.
