Jamie Oliver's Best Ever French Beans
On the way home from the Jersey shore I stopped at a farmers' market. The green beans were so beautifully green; grabbed a bundle along with some plums, blue berries, cherries and peaches. Found this recipe in Jamie's Food Revolution.
1 1/4 green beans
1 1/2 grated parmesan cheese
3 cloves garlic, sliced
extra virgin olive oil
juice from 1/2 a lemon
Wash beans and snap off stalks. Add to saucepan of boiling water with a pinch of salt. Cook for 6 minutes. Drain in a colander, reserve water. Add evoo and garlic to saucepan, when golden brown add beans and jiggle pan around to coat beans. Add a ladleful of reserved water, cheese and lemon juice. Stir and simmer until water and cheese starts to form an oozy, sticky sauce, remove from heat and serve.
