Green Beans with Lemon and Garlic


  • 450g of green beans (with trimmed ends)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 large garlic clove (crushed)
  • Red pepper flakes
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Steam green beans over boiling water for roughly 4 minutes, until they become bright green, tender and crisp.
Heat oil and butter in a frying pan, add the garlic and red pepper flakes and fry for about 30 seconds.
Add the beans and stir until they’re coated in the butter and heated though (this will take about 5 minutes).
Add lemon zest and season with salt and pepper.
