Haricots Verts with Browned Garlic

Beau Gustafson
Yield 8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
Slender haricots verts need little embellishment. Here they're tossed with a good dose of browned garlic. Once it's cooked, garlic's flavor mellows considerably. If you can't find the tiny French green beans, substitute regular green beans and increase the cook time in boiling water to five minutes to ensure they're done.

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts water
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds haricots verts
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced garlic (about 1 head)
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
