An easy way to prepare green beans is to rinse them in a colander under running water, gather them into small bunches with like ends together, and cut off the ends with a sharp knife. When you finish, you'll have a neat stack of green beans ready to cook.
1 pound green beans, trimmed
2 garlic cloves, sliced
Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
