Sautéed Green Beans

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 20 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings
We love the way this colorful dish looks with the combination of green beans and red bell peppers.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning

How to Make It

  1. Cook green beans in boiling salted water to cover 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge into ice water to stop the cooking process; drain.

  2. Sauté sliced red bell pepper in 2 tablespoons hot oil in a large skillet over medium heat 5 minutes or until crisp-tender; add minced garlic, and sauté 2 more minutes. Add green beans; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning, and cook, stirring constantly, until vegetable mixture is thoroughly heated.

  3. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning.
