Green Beans with Toasted Garlic

If any of you have noticed, Im a garlic junkie. I put garlic on EVERYTHING that I can manage. This recipe is no different. It was quick & freakin' delicious. We ate the entire dish of buttery (margarine-y?), garlicky, goodness. Of the three things I made last night, I made this last because of how fast it was. It took me maybe 10 minutes.

Yields 4 servings.
67 calories per serving.


1 lb green beans, trimmed
2 tsp margarine (again, cutting down on the calories!)
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
4 cloves garlic, sliced

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil.
Add beans & cook for 5 minutes.
Plunge beans into cold water & drain.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add margarine & oil; swirl until butter is melted.
Add garlic; saute for 30 seconds.
Remove garlic & set aside.
Add beans; sprinkle with salt & pepper.
Cook for 2 minutes tossing frequently.
Top with garlic.
