This post is going to be short & sweet, just like the recipe. (Well maybe not sweet!) Lemon Beans – probably one of the easiest things you will ever make, but as a simple side dish they can really elevate your meal to another level.
If you can boil water you can make these. My Lemon Beans are that simple.
Just like I promised, short & sweet! Easy, no fuss cooking. Definitely Chef Not Required…
Enjoy your beans!
Simple green beans with lemon
- 500 g green beans trimmed
- zest of one lemon
- juice of one lemon
- 2 tsp olive oil
- salt & pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of water to the boil, add the beans then bring back to the boil
Boil beans for 5-8 mins - depending on your preferred texture
Once beans are cooked to your liking then drain immediately into a sieve or a colander, return the beans to the now dry pot, add lemon juice, zest, salt & pepper to taste & serve
This might seem like an obvious tip - but if you are using the same lemon for the juice & zest - zest it first!!! Sounds obvious I know, but I actually did it the other way around once - a long time ago - but still...
