Fresh green beans are just beginning to pop up at farmer’s markets in my area and this is one of my favorite quick and easy green bean recipes. The green beans go great with the lemon and toasted garlic and it works as a perfect side dish for just about anything. Substitute the green beans for broccoli, sugar snap peas, asparagus, or almost any vegetable and it makes a great side dish. If possible, use fresh green beans so they maintain their crunch.
