Green Beans with Oregano

A great way to spice up a bare vegetable is to add a bit of herb and some lemon juice. Green beans can be rather bland. A bit of flavor will take away the temptation to apply butter and salt to the plate. Oregano on a veggie creates an unexpected flair at mealtime.


1 lb fresh green beans
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, crushed
3/4 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 dash red pepper
1 dash black pepper


In cast iron skillet on medium heat add olive oil, dried oregano, and garlic (crushed in a garlic press). Saute until garlic turns slightly brown. Add green beans (snapped in half), and toss, stir, flip and mix up until they are slightly tender. It is a well known rule that the chef is allowed to sample his or her work as it progresses.

Squeeze on lemon juice and sprinkle on pepper. No need for a serving bowl; serve hot right from skillet!
