Garlicky Green Beans

If you did a lot of cooking or baking around the holidays, you probably want to make something simple right about now! This side dish is a snap.

Trim the ends off 2 cups of green beans (I used regular green beans, but you can use the slimmer haricots verts if you prefer). Cook the beans in boiling water for 2 minutes, then drain, plunge in ice water, and drain again.

Melt a teaspoon of vegan butter (such as Earth Balance) in a small skillet coated with cooking spray, over medium heat. Add the green beans, 1/8 tsp. salt, 1/8 tsp. black pepper, and 1 minced garlic clove; cook for 2 minutes until thoroughly heated.

Divide among two plates for 2 side servings of 60 calories each.
