Garlic-Butter Green Beans
by Jes Mostek
serves: 4
  1 lb.   green beans, fresh or frozen
  1/4 c.   butter, melted
  1 tsp.   garlic powder
  Melt butter in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Stir garlic powder into butter.

If you are using fresh green beans, snap the end off of each bean, and boil or steam the beans to crisp-tender. For frozen beans, heat the beans through.

Drain the cooked green beans and transfer to a serving bowl. Drizzle the liquid garlic-butter over the top of the beans. Toss to make sure each bean is well-coated. Serve immediately.
