This week Community FoodBank is featuring a green bean of a different stripe. This is a quick, flavorful way to prepare Romano beans:


1 pound Romano beans cut on the diagonal into 3-5 inch long pieces
3-4 garlic cloves, sliced
3 tablespoons butter
Salt to taste


Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Blanch the beans (approximately 3 minutes cooking time). Remove and drain immediately.
Melt butter in a large Saucepan.
Add garlic slices, stirring until nearly translucent and start to brown. Do not let the garlic burn.
Reduce heat to medium, add beans and stir for 3 – 5 minutes.
Transfer to a serving dish, add salt and serve.

Yield: 4 servings.
